Bruce names unchanged line-up at Aston Villa
Published : 05 Jan 2011 19:22:14
STEVE Bruce has named an unchanged starting line-up for this evening's Premier League away game at Aston Villa. Bruce has stuck with the same 11 players that secured a comfortable 3-0 home win over Blackburn Rovers last weekend. That means Darren Bent continuing his attacking partnership with Danny Welbeck, with Ghana international Asamoah Gyan once again named on the bench. In the continued absence of the injured Lee Cattermole, a fit-again David Meyler once again partners Jordan Henderson at the heart of a youthful midfield. ASTON VILLA (4-4-1-1): Friedel; Cuellar, Dunne, Collins, Clark; Downing, Petrov, Reo-Coker, A Young; Agbonlahor; Heskey. Subs: Marshall (gk), Bannan, Lichaj, Herd, Pires, Albrighton, Delfouneso. SUNDERLAND (4-4-2): Gordon; Bardsley, Bramble, Ferdinand, Richardson; Elmohamady, Henderson, Meyler, Malbranque; Welbeck, Bent. Subs: Mignolet (gk), Angeleri, Da Silva, Adams, Riveros, Zenden, Gyan.
