Sorry guys, I assumed the yelling during the Chelsea match would wake me up early enough to get the lineups in before publishing...turns out I was wrong.

So Benty got boo'd and we've got Heskey in for Bannan. Why am I awake, exactly? I was hoping for perhaps an epic Cattermole - Hutton collision, but not even that is going to happen.

Bench: Phil Bardsley, Lee Cattermole, Craig Gardner, ...I stopped caring...Ji, Meyler, Westwood, Elmohamady

Aston Villa Starting XI: Shay Given, Alan Hutton, Richard Dunne, James Collins, Stephen Warnock, Stiliyan Petrov, Chris Herd, Emile Heskey, Charles N’Zogbia, Darren Bent, Gabby Agbonlahor.

PS-- Sunderland is also a neighborhood in Portland. I had no idea.
