Team News

  • Both Angel Rangel and Pablo Hernandez made comebacks last time out, though the former is rated as doubtful for the Villa game along with compatriot and top scorer Michu.
  • To make room for the return of Rangel, Dwight Tiendalli switched to the left with Davies dropping to the bench and the back four may remain unchanged.
  • Elsewhere Ki Sung-Yeung and Leon Britton will both hope to replace Agustien, while Danny Graham should keep his place up front.
  • Fabian Delph returns from suspension and could come straight back into the midfield.
  • The likes of Vlaar, Baker, Agbonlahor and Bent are all likely to remain sidelined in what is a tough time for manager Paul Lambert.
  • Having conceded 15 goals in 3 games he may revert to a back four, with Eric Lichaj dropping to the bench.


  • Villa have never won in the top flight away at Swansea but desperately need a result to recover from what was an unbelievably dismal Christmas at Villa Park.
  • However, they face a Swansea side that have lost just 2 of their last 11 games and are untroubled by the prospect of a relegation battle.
  • It is hard to see the visitors confidence being restored with their current injury woes and the hosts may well get their own back for the 2-0 defeat they suffered in the reverse fixture.

  • 3-0 to swansea

  • swansea 2:0 win

  • Villa has to do a lot better than what has seeing in three another matches, but after seeing Fulham vs Swansea, Swansea was maybe lucky to get three points from london. Fulham created more changes than Swansea(you can see it from which team has more shots). I dont think Swansea will overrun Villa, like Tottenham, Chelsea or even Wigan did. This is the game when Villa have to come more than a draw from Wales, maybe 1-1, or 1-2 to Villa.
