Aston Villa Vs. Liverpool: Lineups, Open Match Thread

Darren Bent and Chris Herd are injured. Gabby Agbonlahor is suspended after getting one of the weakest yellow cards in the history of waving around yellow cards (thanks, Phil Dowd!). Barry Bannan remains stuck on the bench, for some unfathomable reason.

But get those vocal cords warmed up, because our favorite ex-Villan is starting for Liverpool!

Aston Villa Starting XI: Brad Guzan, Alan Hutton, Richard Dunne, James Collins, Stephen Warnock; Marc Albrighton, Fabian Delph, Charles N'Zogbia, Stiliyan Petrov; Emile Heskey, Nathan Delfouneso

(That's straight from the official twitter. Dear God, tell me that Petrove isn't really playing left wing)

Villa Bench: Andy Marshall, Barry Bannan, Ciaran Clark, Carlos Cuellar, Andreas Weimann, Daniel Johnson, Graham Burke.

Liverpool Starting XI: Pepe Reina, Glen Johnson, Jose Enrique, Daniel Agger, Luis Suarez, Jordan Henderson, Stewart Downing, Charlie Adam, Jonjo Shelvey, Martin Skrtel, Craig Bellamy.

(Again, please tell me Skrtel is a forward. Please.)

Liverpool Bench: Andy Carroll, Maxi Rodriquez, Sebastian Coates, Dirk Kuyt, Jamie Carragher, Doni, Martin Kelly.
