Aston Villa vs. Stoke City: Lineups and Open Thread

Michael Regan

The Premier League is finally back! Join us in the open thread as Aston Villa take on Stoke City

Welcome back everyone! The Premier League returns today and Aston Villa have traveled north to take on Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium.

It's always nice to start the campaign with a win, ala last season at Arsenal. Let's all get our hopes up again (well, at least momentarily) for another season of Paul Lambert's Aston Villa side battling it out to be best of the rest behind the mega money sides in England's top tier of football. Facing the facts, Aston Villa probably won't be in second due to alphabetical order on the table for long, unless the victories start flowing in today!

In the USA, this game will be streamed via NBC Live Extra.

Lineups:

Villa (4-2-3-1): Guzan; Hutton, Vlaar, Senderos, Cissokho; Delph, Westwood, N'Zogbia, Weimann, Richardson; Agbonlahor

Subs from: Given, Bent, El Ahmadi, Baker, Clark, Bacuna, Grealish

Stoke (4-2-3-1): Begovic; Bardsley, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters; Whelan, N'Zonzi; Diouf, Ireland, Arnautovic, Bojan
