Villa

It's a derby day! Excitement, right? We hate those pesky Wolves! Yeah, ok, I'm not very good at manufacturing hatred for a club whose badge looks like it came straight from a comic book. But still, Villa need to win this one. This not winning thing is getting ridiculous.

Here are your lineups:

Wolves Starting XI: Wayne Hennessey, Kevin Foley, Christophe Berra, Roger Johnson, Stephen Ward, Michael Kightly, Karl Henry, Emmanuel Frimpong, David Edwards, Matthew Jarvis, Steven Fletcher.

Wolves Bench: Dorus De Vries, George Elokobi, Richard Stearman, Stephen Hunt. Nenad Milijas, Kevin Doyle, Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.

Aston Villa Starting XI: Shay Given; Alan Hutton, James Collins, Richard Dunne, Ciaran Clark; Marc Albrighton, Stiliyan Petrov, Gary Gardner, Gabriel Agbonlahor; Robbie Keane, Darren Bent
