Aston Villa vs West Brom live stream: How to watch Premier League fixture online and on TV tonight

West Brom will aim to keep their slim survival hopes alive when they face Aston Villa in a West Midlands derby in the Premier League on Sunday.

Sam Allardyce’s side are 10 points adrift of 17th placed Brighton in the relegation zone and realistically cannot afford another slip-up after they were comprehensively beaten 3-0 by Leicester City on Thursday.

The Baggies had been in good form prior to that defeat at the King Power, however, and scored eight goals across their two wins over Chelsea and Southampton.

Villa have slid down the Premier League table in the absence of captain Jack Grealish and have won just two of the eight games without their talismanic England international, but would relish the chance to condemn their West Midlands rivals to a costly defeat.

Here’s everything you need to know before the match this evening.

When is it?

The match kicks off at 7pm BST on Sunday 25 April.

How can I watch?

It will be shown live on BT Sport 1, with coverage starting from 6:30pm. BT Sport customers will also be able to stream the match live on the BT Sport app and website.

What is the team news?

Villa manager Dean Smith said on Friday that Grealish is set to undergo another scan on his shin injury next week, with a return date for the midfielder still unknown. Trezeguet is out for the season with a knee injury, while right-back Matty Cash is suspended after being sent off during Villa’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday.

For the visitors, Branislav Ivanovic and Robert Snodgrass are not expected to be available due to injury, but Allardyce has a clean bill of health apart from those absences.

Predicted line-ups

Aston Villa: Martinez; Elmohamady, Konsa, Mings, Targett; McGinn, Luiz; Traore, Ramsey, El Ghazi; Watkins

West Brom: Johnstone; Furlong, Ajayi, Bartley, Townsend; Yokuslu, Maitland-Niles; Robinson, Pereira, Phillips; Diagne

Odds

Aston Villa: 24/23

Draw: 49/20

West Brom: 10/3

Prediction

Despite their loss of form in the absence of Grealish, Villa have remained competitive and only lost by one goal in their previous two defeats to Liverpool and City. West Brom’s need for three points is far greater than Villa’s, however, although they may come up just short of an important win. Aston Villa 1-1 West Brom
