Aston Villa and Southampton are set to face off in the Premier League this weekend

After a weekend without Premier League football following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, top flight action will resume on Friday night as Aston Villa host Southampton.

The clash at Villa Park is one of seven matches that will go ahead this weekend, with three others postponed ahead of the monarch’s state funeral on Monday.

Villa head into the match off the back of a spirited 1-1 draw against defending championsManchester City last time out - a result that ended a run of three straight defeats.

The Villans currently sit 17th in the table, with four points from their opening six matches this term.

For their part, Southampton have enjoyed a relatively positive start to the new campaign, picking up two wins and a draw in their opening six fixtures.

The Saints lost their last match, however, slumping to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Bruno Lage’s Wolves side.

Aston Villa

Villa are set to be without a number of players heading into Friday’s clash.

Matty Cash is expected to miss out through injury, while new signing Jan Bednarek is ineligible to play against his parent club.

Speaking about the former, Steven Gerrard said: “Cashy’s got a hamstring situation. He’ll have an MRI scan and we’ll check it out.”

Whether or not summer addition Leander Dendoncker will be available remains to be seen.

The ex-Wolves man missed out on the draw against City with tonsilitis, but could be in contention to make his debut against the Saints.

Centre-back Diego Carlos and understudy goalkeeper Jed Steer are both unavailable due to long-term injuries.

Southampton

Southampton will be without teenage midfielder Romeo Lavia, who is expected to be sidelined for around six weeks with a hamstring injury.

Full-back Tino Livramento remains out as he continues to step up his recovery from an ACL injury suffered in April, while experienced forward Theo Walcott would have missed out on last weekend’s meeting with Brentford, had it gone ahead.

Midfielders Ibrahima Diallo and Mohamed Elyounoussi had both missed some training in the build-up to the postponed clash at St. Mary’s due to illness but have since returned and should be available for the Saints.
