Is Aston Villa vs Brighton and Hove Albion on TV, what's the team news, what are the odds?

Published

on

Brighton will aim to build on their impressive victory against Tottenham Hotspur as they travel to Aston Villa on Saturday.

It’s rarely easy to prepare your team after the international break but Graham Potter’s men should go to Villa Park full of confidence after their 3-0 triumph last time out.

It was a crucial win for Brighton, not only in terms of points but also for their confidence. Other than their defeat at Chelsea, Albion had been playing well under Potter’s new formation but their points tally remained low despite their displays. Albion are 14th in the Premier League table on nine points from their first eight matches.

Aston Villa have also been in a similar situation and they too could easily have had a few more points on the board. Dean Smith’s men have adapted to life in the Premier League pretty well following their promotion from the Championship. Villa go into the clash on the back of a 5-1 win at injury-hit Norwich City last time out. They are just one place below Brighton in 15th with eight points from the first eight fixtures.

It maybe harsh or too early to call this a relegation battle – both teams have loftier ambitions – but it will certainly be a crucial clash for both at the lower end of the league table. A victory for either side would allow some breathing space between each other and the bottom three.

The two teams met last month in the Carabao Cup at the Amex Stadium and Smith’s men came on top with a 3-1 win. Brighton made numerous changes for the match and their team was predominately made up with players with from their under-23s and under-18s.

What time does Aston Villa vs Brighton kick off?

The match kicks-off at 3pm at Villa Park

Is the game on TV?

No. Highlights of the Aston Villa match will be on Match Of The Day at 10.30pm on Saturday evening.

What’s the team news?

Leandro Trossard is working his way back to fitness after a groin problem but this Saturday could be too soon for the Belgian. Shane Duffy has recovered from a calf injury and played for the Republic of Ireland in the recent European qualifiers. Brighton will also hope to have Davy Propper (hamstring) available. Aaron Connolly will hope to keep his place in the starting XI after his two-goal man of the match display against Spurs.

Villa goalkeeper Tom Heaton, who withdrew from the England squad for Euro 2020 qualifiers in the Czech Republic and Bulgaria through injury, is expected to feature. Jonathan Kodjia has recovered from ankle and cheekbone injuries.

Who is the referee?

Referee: David Coote. Assistants: Stuart Burt, Nicholas Hopton. Fourth official: Geoff Eltringham. VAR: Martin Atkinson. Assistant VAR: Constantine Hatzidakis

What are the odds?

Aston Villa are 11/8 to take all three points, with Albion 19/10. A draw is available at 23/10.

A 1-1 is the favoured scoreline at 6/1, with a 2-1 Villa or 1-0 Villa at 9/1. A 2-1 victory for the Albion is at 11/1 or a 3-1 to Brighton is 22/1.

Jack Grealish to score first for Villa is 14/1 and Pascal Gross is at 12/1. Dan Burn is an outside bet for Brighton at 33-1, while no goalscorer can be had at 10/1.

Rumour has it / PSG star to Tottenham and Manchester United line-up £140m swoop for England duo

Published

on

Paris Saint-Germain are determined to secure the services of Tottenham’s play maker this January.

Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to offer Adrien Rabiot to Tottenham but they do want Christian Eriksen in return. Rabiot, 24, joined PSG in the summer but the club are willing to let him move to north London in January if it guarantees getting Eriksen to Paris.

Manchester United want to lure England midfielder Declan Rice away from West Ham and will stump-up £70m to do so. The 20-year-old has impressed at the London Stadium and United see him as the powerful player they can build their midfield around.

Ole Solskjaer has also given the green light to the club in their bid to sign Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson in January. United have also been strongly linked with Moussa Dembele, Mario Mandzukic and Krzysztof Piatek but the manager is said to favour Wilson, who has consistently delivered in the Premier League. The 27-year-old will cost them around £70m.

Bristol City are lining up a January move for on-loan Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah. The 20-year-old is on loan at Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United and despite limited game time, he has scored four goals in eight appearances. City tried to sign Nketiah last summer and are keen to try again in January.

Steve Bruce wants to bring QPR’s Ryan Manning to Newcastle in the January transfer window. The 23-year-old can operate in midfield or at left back. Newcastle are also keen on £17m rated Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir but face competition from Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to rewarded with a new contract at Arsenal. Aubameyang, 30, has scored 49 goals in 75 appearances since joining in January 2018. He has two years remaining but the Gunners want to tie him down until 2023.

Veteran striker Jermain Defoe could be offered a player/coach role at Rangers next season. Ibrox manager Steven Gerrard is open to the idea for Defoe, who continues to be a regular goalscorer for them at the age 37. “Jermain will know certain situations in the game, certain things to look out for in that specific position – better than any coach in the world,” said Gerrard.
