Aston Villa’s best starting line-up for Premier League opener against Bournemouth following busy summer transfer window

Aston Villa’s Premier League campaign gets underway with a trip to Bournemouth this Saturday.

We’re into the final month of the summer transfer window and things have calmed down for Aston Villa after a hectic beginning.

Philippe Coutinho, Boubacar Kamara, Diego Carlos and Robin Olsen all signed permanent deals with the club within the first six weeks whilst Ludwig Augustinsson joined on loan from Sevilla more recently.

There is belief that Steven Gerrard could yet add more new faces to his squad before the window slams shut on September 1st but if things are to remain as they are, what would Villa’s strongest starting line-up look like?

New signings Kamara and Carlos are clear upgrades and are pretty much guaranteed starts but away from those, arguments could be had across the board for several different positions.

The opening day trip away at Bournemouth will give us the first idea of what Gerrard feels his strongest team is but there is also more of a case for rotation this season, too.

As things stand, here’s what we think the claret and blue’s best starting line-up is for the game with The Cherries and beyond.
