Stu Forster

The starting XI and substitutes for Aston Villa and West Brom ahead of a big derby clash at the Hawthorns.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION STARTING XI:

Ben Foster; Jonas Olsson, Gareth McAuley, Billy Jones, Liam Ridgewell; Graham Dorrans, Claudio Yacob, James Morrison, Chris Brunt; Peter Odemwingie, Romelu Lukaku

WEST BROMWICH ALBION BENCH:

Goran Popov, Markus Rosenberg, Boaz Myhill, Jerome Thomas, George Thorne, Craig Dawson, Gabriel Tamas

ASTON VILLA STARTING XI:

Brad Guzan; Matthew Lowton,Ron Vlaar (!), Ciaran Clark, Nathan Baker, Joe Bennett; Ashley Westwood, Fabian Delph, Charles N'Zogbia; Gabriel Agbonlahor, Christian Benteke

ASTON VILLA BENCH:

Andy Marshall, Darren Bent, Stephen Ireland, Eric Lichaj, Brett Holman, Jordan Bowery, Barry Bannan

Just like that it's back to the 3-5-2, which is just fine by me. The big news for Villa is the return of captain Ron Vlaar, whose name on the teamsheet is like a comforting hand on our collective shoulders. Andreas Weimann is conspicuous by his absence, with the rumor being that he's been left out of the team due to illness.
