Aston Villa

Last updated: Sat 11 May 2019 21:55
In Brief

Aston Villa lose for first time since February. Tammy Abraham and James Chester doubtful. Orjan Nyland and Tom Carroll injured.

Looking Back

Went down to a first defeat since mid-February as they lost 2-1 at home to Norwich on final day.

Rested several players for that game included Tyrone Mings, Jack Grealish and John McGinn.

Looking Ahead

All three of those rested players will return for this one. Villa will also hope Tammy Abraham is fit after missing the final few games. James Chester remains a big doubt though.

Tom Carroll and Orjan Nyland both remain injury absentees.

Points of Interest

Villa have 11 wins, eight draws and four defeats on home soil in the regular season.

West Bromwich Albion

Last updated: Sat 11 May 2019 21:55
In Brief

West Brom go down to disappointing Derby loss. Hal Robson-Kanu suspended. Gareth Barry and Jake Livermore doubtful.

Looking Back

Lost 3-1 on the final day of the regular season at Derby, where they were not at their best.

Have been resting players lately but last week was closer to their best eleven.

Looking Ahead

James Shan's line-up is rather unclear. He has so many options especially in his midfield.

Hal Robson-Kanu's dismissal last week means his season is now over due to suspension.

Gareth Barry and Jake Livermore will hope to be fit after missing the last few games.

Points of Interest

West Brom have 11 wins, four draws and eight defeats on the road this season. Drew first league game 2-2 at home and won second 2-0 away at Villa Park.
