Aston Villa come into this match in 17th, barely clinging to life above the drop zone. A win would vault them to 13th (ahead of West Bromwich Albion) and a draw would see them move to 16th. It's another situation where a draw wouldn't help TOO much, so hopefully Paul Lambert goes for the win today.

And he'll have to with an Aston Villa side who have been absolutely shattered by injuries.Ron VlaarNathan BakerPhilippe Senderos, and Fabian Delph are the key players who won't be in the lineup. Nor will Christian Benteke, who is serving the second of his three matches on the suspension for the red card. Hooray for incompetent refereeing screwing us over a series of weeks! Anyhow, here are the lineups, and please join us in the comments. Even in the worst-case scenario, we all still have each other.

Up the Villa!
