Aston Villa vs. Norwich: Lineups

Forgive me. I've just woken up and I'm terribly confused by this lineup. What I get from the twitter is that Chris Herd will be starting at right back. Which makes a ton of sense, considering his position in the official lineups tweeted out. Please, god, let the twitters be wrong and have this be three across the back.

Also, there are three men named Bennet, one named Barnett, one named Benteke and one named Bent. This should be not at all confusing this ungodly hour.

Aston Villa Starting XI: Brad Guzan, Matthew Lowton, Ron Vlaar (c), Joe Bennett, Karim El Ahmadi, Fabian Delph, Chris Herd, Marc Albrighton, Brett Holman, Gabby Agbonlahor, Christian Benteke

Substitutes (from): Shay Given, Darren Bent, Ashley Westwood, Eric Lichaj, Barry Bannan, Stephen Ireland, Andi Weimann.

Norwich City Starting XI: John Ruddy, Russell Martin, Bradley Johnson, Sébastien Bassong, Michael Turner, Grant Holt (c), Anthony Pilkington, Wes Hoolahan, Elliott Bennett, Javier Garrido, Alexander Tettey.

Substitutes (from): Declan Rudd, Robert Snodgrass, Jonny Howson, Simeon Jackson, Steve Morison, Leon Barnett, Ryan Bennett.
