    Premier League Preview: Aston Villa v Swansea

    Paul Lambert Aston VillaWritten by: @GrantMilesFF

    Aston Villa and Swansea will be both hoping for a return to form after spluttering in the festive programme. Villa sit just four points above the drop zone following their home defeat to Crystal Palace on Boxing Day.

    Paul Lambert’s Villa have lost their last four matches and a mini blip is threatening to become a major issue if they keep failing to secure points. The Villains will be keen to stem the tide in this fixture.

    Michael Laudrup’s Swansea are struggling too following a few narrow defeats by a one goal margin to Chelsea and Everton in their last two outings.

    Laudrup has said he will make changes for this clash and will take heart from the fact that his side have already won three games on the road this season already.

    Villa are set to be without Christian Benteke and Ron Vlaar with knee and calf injuries, but Ashley Westwood is expected to be welcomed back into the fold following his suspension. Okore remains a long term absentee at Villa Park.

    Swansea are set to ring the changes with Michu and Nathan Dyer both out with long term injuries of six weeks or longer prompting their Danish manager to say he may have to delve into the January transfer market. Gary Monk misses out with a knee problem whilst Leon Britton is expected to maintain his place.

    Aston Villa have won just 2 of their 9 league games in front of their own supporters and there will be geniune frustration should their team fail to secure three points here. Paul Lambert may have to start looking over his shoulder should this occur.

    Aston Villa v Swansea City Pre-Match Stats

    Christian Benteke scored in both Barclays Premier League meetings with Swansea last season, but he will miss this match through injury.

    Swansea have lost eight of their nine previous league trips to Villa Park (W1), failing to score in all eight defeats.

    Aston Villa have won only seven points in their nine Premier League home games this season (W2 D1 L6) – no side has won fewer (Fulham and Sunderland also with seven).

    Villa have lost four successive Premier League matches, scoring just one goal in the process.

    The Villans have not lost five successive Premier League matches since January 2001 (the only time it has happened to them in the PL previously)

    Swansea have won only two points in their last four Premier League matches (D2 L2).

    Aston Villa have scored just one first half goal in their last 13 Premier League games, and have not scored a single first half goal at home this season.

    Aston Villa have failed to score in five of their last six Barclays Premier League home games.

    Swansea have taken only 38 points from 36 Premier League games in 2013.

    Villa have scored the first goal of the game on a league-low three occasions in the Premier League this season, but on each of these three occasions, they’ve gone on to win the match.
