Team News: Christian Benteke dropped for Aston Villa

Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke has been dropped for their visit to Southampton this evening.

Christian Benteke has been dropped for Aston Villa's visit to Southampton this evening.

The Belgium striker has been out of sorts of late, and manager Paul Lambert has opted to use Gabriel Agbonlahor and Libor Kozak in the forward positions.

Meanwhile, the Saints continue with their own partnership of Rickie Lambert and
Jay Rodriguez up top, meaning that record signing Pablo Osvaldo has to settle for a place on the bench.

Southampton: Gazzaniga; Clyne, Yoshida, Lovren, Shaw; Wanyama, S. Davis, Ward-Prowse, Lallana; Rodriguez, Lambert

Aston Villa:Guzan; Bacuna, Vlaar, Clark, Baker, Luna; El Ahmadi, Westwood, Delph; Agbonlahor, Kozak
