Boubacar Kamara replacement chosen as Clement Lenglet gets new role - Aston Villa predicted XI vs Fulham

Aston Villa predicted lineup to take on Fulham in the Premier League, including who will replace the injured Boubacar Kamara.

Aston Villa are back in Premier League action on Saturday afternoon as they travel to the capital to face Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Looking for a response following two home defeats in quick succession against Chelsea and Manchester United, the Villans have the opportunity to move back into the top four this weekend. If local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers do a favour by beating Tottenham Hotspur, it will put Villa in the driving seat once again. As long as they win themselves, of course.

Fulham have struggled this season compared to last when they finished in tenth, but there has been an improvement of late. Marco Silva's side have lost just one of their last five Premier League fixtures and are within five points of the top half. They too will be desperate for three points on Saturday to boost their season prospects.

Villa have been dealt some huge injury blows this week as Boubacar Kamara will miss the rest of the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury and Diego Carlos is set to be sidelined for several weeks. Ezri Konsa is out, too, giving Unai Emery quite the selection headache in defence and midfield.

Including dilemmas in both of those areas, as well as a key choice in attack, here's how we predict the Villans will line up for their 25th Premier League fixture of the campaign.
