The pressure is increasing on Steven Gerrard from the Holte End as his side remain just outside the relegation zone in these early stages on goal difference. He will take huge encouragement from Villa’s most recent outing as his side collected a much-needed point against the reigning champions, but he’s not out of the woods just yet.
Southampton have had a real Jekyll-and-Hyde start to the season, capitulating against Tottenham on matchday one, before producing a miraculous turnaround against Leeds United, beating Leicester City and edging Chelsea in Thomas Tuchel’s penultimate Premier League game. Reality set in a fortnight ago for Ralph Hasenhuttl as Wolves put them to the sword in a 1-0 reversal, adding to their inconsistent trend.
Aston Villa team news
Diego Carlos is set for a lengthy spell in the physio room, while deadline-day signing Jan Bednarek is ineligible to face his parent club, so Gerrard’s centre-back pairing of Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa effectively picks itself. Matty Cash was a concerning casualty from the City draw, straining his hamstring, so Ashley Young could come in here to deputise in his absence. Leander Dendoncker is a new option for Gerrard after coming in from Wolves in the last few hours of the summer window, but the Villa boss is unlikely to rotate too much from the side that prevented City from claiming three points. Ollie Watkins and Emiliano Martinez should be able to feature after illness, but the former is touch-and-go.
Southampton team news
Valentino Livramento remains a long-term absentee for the visitors, so two-capped England international Kyle Walker-Peters will naturally continue at right-back. Duje Caleta-Car faces a late fitness test following his deadline-day move, while Romeo Lavia is definitely out.
Scoreline prediction: Aston Villa 1-1 Southampton
