How to watch Aston Villa vs Southampton: Premier League action returns on Friday night as Villa host Southampton. But is the game live on television? Read on for the channel guide, kick-off time and more.

After last weekend’s hasty postponements, Premier League fans get to enjoy at least most of the games this weekend, starting on Friday night with Aston Villa vs Southampton, while two promoted sides Nottingham Forest and Fulham also square off.

We’ll be focusing on Villa vs Saints as the home side look to pull themselves out of early-season relegation fears. Villa boss Steven Gerrard isn’t exactly Mr. Popularity among the Holte End faithful and, after heavy investment in the team since his arrival almost a year ago, Gerrard might be the league’s most under-threat manager (along with his old Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers at Leicester).

Villa have lost four of their opening six games with only one win. They have some injury and illness worries ahead of tonight’s game. Matty Cash is out with a hamstring injury, while Olly Watkins and goalkeeper Emil Martinez have both been ill.

The Saints have lost 12 of their last 18 games and their most recent visit to Villa Park ended in a 4-0 spanking back in March. They sit on 7-points after 6 games in a season where many are predicting major struggles for Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side

Here’s how to watch Aston Villa vs Southampton on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.

Southampton vs Aston Villa kicks-off at 8:00pm UK time a rare Friday Night Football, on September 16. The game is being played at Villa Park, Birmingham.
