Southampton vs Aston Villa – Match Preview

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins

Southampton will continue their quest to pick up their first Premier League points of the season as Aston Villa travel to St Marys on Saturday.

Nigel Adkins could be without Jas Hooiveld (calf), Steve De Ridder (knock) and Jack Cork (ankle), and looks set to give record signing Gaston Ramirez his first start following last weekends nightmare 6-1 defeat to Arsenal.

Paul Lambert celebrated his first victory as Villa manager against Swansea last weekend, and has no fresh injury concerns to deal with.

Richard Dunne and Marc Albrighton remain the long term casualties, having not featured so far this season.

You feel goals could prove to be the problem for Villa, having only found the net four times in their last ten Premier League away games.

There would be no better time to improve that statistic than this weekend, with Southampton having conceded 14 in their opening four matches, the joint most after four matches in Premier League history, tied with Swindon.

Prediction: Southampton 1-2 Aston Villa
