Fulham Vs. Aston Villa: Lineups

Is anyone expecting three points from Villa in this match against Fulham? I should probably be more optimistic, but today, I'm just looking to see our squad perform well, not expecting them to come away from Craven Cottage with all three points. Then again, I'd rather be pleasantly surprised than overwhelmingly disappointed.

As expected after listening to Paul Lambert, Christian Benteke drops to the bench, and Darren Bent is resurrected. It'll be Nathan Baker in for the injured Ciaran Clark.

Fulham Starting XI: Mark Schwarzer, Aaron Hughes, Brede Hangeland, John Arne Riise, Chris Baird, Steve Sidwell, Dimitar Berbatov, Mladen Petric, Kieran Richardson, Hugo Rodallega, Sascha Riether.

Substitutes (from): Philippe Senderos, Pajtim Kasami, Giorgos Karagounis, Mahamadou Diarra, Ashkan Dejagah, Alexander Kacaniklic, David Stockdale.

Aston Villa Starting XI: Brad Guzan, Matthew Lowton, Ron Vlaar, Nathan Baker, Joe Bennett, Karim El Ahmadi, Fabian Delph, Stephen Ireland, Brett Holman, Gabby Agbonlahor, Darren Bent.

Substitutes (from): Christian Benteke, Marc Albrighton, Shay Given, Charles N'Zogbia, Eric Lichaj, Barry Bannan, Andi Weimann
