Hasenhüttl welcomes Romeu and Bertrand back as Smith selects Sanson on Villa bench | fpl.wiki

Ralph Hasenhüttl welcomes back some key personnel to his Southampton team for their Gameweek 21 meeting with Aston Villa.

Ryan Bertrand (£5.0m) missed the midweek defeat to Arsenal through suspension and makes an immediate return at left-back.

With Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.8m) out for an indeterminate amount of time, the right-back berth is tonight occupied by central midfielder Ibrahima Diallo (£4.5m) now that Hasenhüttl has more options in his preferred position.

Oriol Romeu (£4.5m) is the other key returnee tonight, starting next to James Ward-Prowse (£6.1m) for the first time since Gameweek 16 in Southampton’s 4-4-2 system.

Meanwhile, Nathan Redmond (£6.4m) features on the flanks of midfield with Stuart Armstrong (£5.5m) as Theo Walcott (£5.8m) moves up the pitch to play up-front with Danny Ings (£8.4m). That sees Che Adams (£5.9m) drop to the Southampton bench.

As is to be expected, Aston Villa are unchanged with Jack Grealish (£7.7m) and Ollie Watkins (£6.2m) in the left-wing and centre-forward roles respectively.

However, all eyes will be on their bench as Morgan Sanson is named among the substitutes and is thought to be challenging John McGinn (£5.5m) and Douglas Luiz (£4.9m) for central midfield berth in the near future.

Southampton v Aston Villa Line-ups

Southampton XI: A McCarthy; Bertrand, Bednarek, J Stephens, Diallo; Redmond, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong; Walcott, Ings.

Aston Villa XI: Martínez; Targett, Mings, Konsa, Cash; McGinn, D Luiz; Grealish, Barkley, B Traoré; Watkins.
