Happy Boxing Day, everyone! As our post-Christmas treat we've got Aston Villa on a trip to Wales to take on Garry Monk's side. The former squad are 12th and the latter 8th, and while nothing can change the fact that Villa are behind Swans, the Birmingham club can jump into the top half of the table with a win today.

If you haven't had a chance to yet, make sure to give Aaron's preview a read this morning. And if you just want a laugh, we've got our Christmas keywords leftover from yesterday. Whatever you choose to do, though, is just biding time until we can kick off. So, take a gander at the lineups below, join us in the comments, and Up the Villa!
