Aston Villa FC will welcome Southampton at Villa Park for the English Premier League. Following the endured 2 – 0 loss against Sheffield United, their 3rd straight within the Premier League, Villa will try to have a comeback on their path when they sponsor the Southampton side within the relegation six-pointer on the upcoming matchday 18. The host is level on points with the visitors ahead of Saturday’s face-off, which means that a near showdown is on the cards. Regardless of the failed conversion of penalty in the 2 – 0 loss at Sheffield United, the player that must be kept to observe on the home squad will be captain Jack Peter Grealish, who plays as an attacking midfielder or as a winger. Grealish registered four goals within the English top-flight so far on this campaign. He has been a huge asset for the Villans. On the other hand, Southampton will be heading to the game with back to back loss against West Ham United and Newcastle. Southampton is willing to avoid the relegation area within the Premier League standings.

However, the Villans despair was not as long. Aston Villa obtained a welcome uplift from Tuesday when they beat Liverpool’s youth players within the Carabao Cup, although they will find it more difficult when they face Southampton. Match arrangements really benefited Villa in the League Cup in which they became this campaign’s 1st semi-finalist as Liverpool’s 1st team squad were all sent to Qatar for the FIFA Club World Cup and the remaining under-23 squad to represent the European champions. The 5 – 0 pounding Aston Villa dispersed out following the poor surge within the Premier League of five losses coming from seven and having improvements against the Liverpool youths, manager Dean Smith have in mind that he has the players to call upon to make things up within the bread and butter tournament. However, we are confident to back up with Aston Villa in a 2 – 1 full-time score prediction. As we can see that the host is strong to beat at their own ground.
