Aston Villa take on AFC Bournemouth on Saturday in the Premier League, with Villa looking to start well at home.
Dean Smith’s side will be looking to build upon a solid performance against Spurs, despite it ending in a defeat in North London.
John McGinn scored a great goal at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, before three Spurs goals condemned Villa to defeat.
Bournemouth, meanwhile, drew with Sheffield United at the Vitality Stadium, with a late Billy Sharp goal denying them the three points in their opening fixture.
Both sides will be looking to take their first win of the season on Saturday, with Villa looking to get off to the perfect start at Villa Park.
But what will be the key battles on the pitch at 3pm on Saturday?
There are many key players for both side, with Bournemouth having many established starts, whilst Villa have some up and coming talents.
But which battles will be key?
Tyrone Mings vs Callum Wilson
Mings will have to be at his best to deny the England international, who has been in lethal form over the past few seasons.
The Villa defender will have to use all his skills to deny Wilson, who could threaten him with his lethal finishing and pace.
John McGinn vs Jefferson Lerma
Lerma, Bournemouth’s record signing, will have to be at his best to deny John McGinn.
The Scot caused problems for Spurs throughout the game in North London, scoring the opening goal of the game.
Adam Smith vs Trezeguet
The Egyptian had a solid debut for Villa against Spurs, and will be hoping for a repeat performance against Bournemouth.
Smith has been another Cherries stalwart, and will also have to be prepared to deal with the new-Villa man.
Jack Grealish vs Steve Cook
Grealish didn’t have his greatest game against Spurs, but will be looking for better on return to his home turf.
Steve Cook has been at the heart of the Bournemouth defence since they were promoted to the top flight, and will have to be at his best to deal with the tricky Grealish.
