We're back with news and headlines for the day. And it's a day you don't want to miss. Aston Villa get to be featured on national TV in a match that will, in all likelihood, see them embarrassed! On one hand, you've got a Southampton side who have only conceded five goals in eleven matches. On the other hand, a Villa side who probably can't spell or define the word "goal". Hooray! Here's your top stories:
- Everybody is injured: Nathan Baker, Ron Vlaar, Philippe Senderos, Fabian Delph. That's the main injury list. You can probably add someone else at random given Villa's luck. Plus there's the whole thing about Benteke being on a 3-match suspension. Wheee.
- Lambert's 100: 100 matches since Paul Lambert took over, and I'm sure it feels a whole lot longer to many of you.
And, if you need some quick reading before the match, check out Aaron's excellent preview. If you'd like some listening, Jack and I did our usual podcast and we've got a fair amount of Southampton talk.
