Steven Gerard’s future was safe when his team earned a stunning 1-1 draw against Premier League champions, Manchester City the last time, but that could all change again if they lose to this young and energetic Southampton side.
The Villans have splashed the cash on some fine players in the last few transfer windows and they want the team to make progress.
Having won the league title in Scotland, Gerard seems to be the man they need to get the team back to the top, but they have started this season poorly.
Southampton has become a team reliant on youngsters after poaching some of the best at Manchester City in the last transfer window.
It works for them and they have earned some huge wins in this campaign. One team you cannot bet against is the Saints and they will look to earn all three points from this game.
They lost their last EPL game to Wolves and Villa beat them 4-0 on their last visit to this ground, so they know it will be a tough day at the office.
The best football prediction for this game is over 1.5 goals. For similar predictions, click here.
