Southampton V Aston Villa at St Mary's Stadium Wednesday 4th Dec 2013, kick-off 19:45 (GMT).  Southampton have a glut of injuries, particularly with goalkeeper Artur Boruc out with a broken hand and fellow keeper Kelvin Davis also absent. French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has a groin injury, while the trio of Gaston Ramirez, Danny Fox and Guly do Prado are also unavailable.
Aston Villa forward Andreas Weimann is a doubt with a tight hamstring picked up in Saturday's draw with Sunderland.Otherwise Paul Lambert has no new injury concerns.
For about eight minutes on Sunday afternoon, Southampton were sitting a scarcely credible second in the table - Jay Rodriguez's goal after 13 seconds had put them 1-0 up against Chelsea and Manchester City, at that point, were being oh so briefly frustrated by Swansea. Come the end of the afternoon the Saints hadn't managed another shot on target, Jose Mourinho had maintained his proud unbeaten Premier League record at Stamford Bridge and Southampton were in seventh.
It just shows how difficult it's going to be for them to maintain their superb start to the season to try and challenge for those precious Champions League spots that executive chairman Nicola Cortese so covets.
In their last two games they've been beaten by the top two teams in the Premier League but by no means disgraced, sharing possession almost equally with Arsenal and Chelsea over the 90 minutes.
Artur Boruc's comical 'Cruyff turn' at the Emirates didn't help them but he will be sorely missed with his hand injury because he's been a vital part of the most miserly defence in the division - Southampton, like Arsenal, conceding just 10 goals so far in 13 games and just two of those at home.
No pressure then for 21 year-old Paulo Gazzaniga, who looks like he will step in.
Christian Benteke might fancy testing him out early on - after four goals in his first four league appearances this season the big Belgian hasn't found the net in his last seven games and a handful of Villa fans even had the temerity to jeer him when he was taken off late on in the goalless draw against Sunderland on Saturday. How quickly some can forget.
But despite Villa failing to score in five of their last seven league games they bring an impressive away record to St Mary's - beaten just once on their travels in six games this season. They've won at Arsenal and Norwich, and the only defeat came at Chelsea when they got very unlucky with a couple of second-half refereeing decisions.

Southampton won both meetings with Aston Villa last season, with the 4-1 home win not only their biggest of the season, but also their first in the Premier League since April 2005.
Striker Rickie Lambert scored three goals for Southampton in the two meetings with Villa last season.
Forty four of the 69 games between the two clubs have produced three or fewer goals (64%).

Saints are one of only four teams in the Premier League to remain unbeaten at home this season (along with Manchester City, Chelsea and Everton).
They have suffered back-to-back defeats. Manager Mauricio Pochettino has not lost three games in a row since taking charge last season.
Only Arsenal have conceded as few goals in the Premier League this season (10) as Southampton; only Manchester City have conceded as few at home (two).
The last time Southampton lost to Aston Villa, in 2005, current first-team players Luke Shaw and James Ward-Prowse were still at primary school.

Aston Villa
Villa are unbeaten in their last four Premier League games, although three have been drawn.
They have lost just one league fixture on their travels this season, in contrast to four defeats at Villa Park.
Villa have scored the first goal on fewer occasions than any other Premier League club this season (twice).
Paul Lambert's side have failed to score in five of their last seven matches.
With five clean sheets in 2013-14, Villa have equalled the number of shut-outs they recorded during the whole of last season.
Christian Benteke, who celebrated his 23rd birthday on Tuesday, has now gone seven games without a goal for Villa.
