Aston Villa host Stoke City at Villa Park hoping to make it three successive home victories in the Premier League.
Their 1-0 victory over league leaders Chelsea last Sunday came as a surprise to many as Paul Lambert’s side eased their relegation fears and boosted their chances of a mid-table finish.
Stoke City could leapfrog Villa in to 10th with a win this afternoon and would all but secure Premier League football next season should they manage to come away with all three points.
Here are the confirmed starting line-ups for both sides…
