The club will incorporate key signings in the starting lineup.

Aston Villa made headlines by securing seventh place in the 2022-23 Premier League points table. The second half of the season was tremendous for Unai Emery’s men where they went 10 games unbeaten at one point. Securing the UEFA Europa Conference League qualification was a huge achievement for the club and a just reward.

Now, heading into the 2023-24 season, Aston Villa is making strong strides in the transfer market. With players like Pau Torres, Moussa Diaby and more coming into the fold, it will be interesting to see how the Villans take the field.

To that end, here is the Aston Villa predicted lineup for season opener against Newcastle in Premier League 2023-24 season:

GK – Emiliano Martinez

Emiliano Martinez
Martinez is an integral part of Aston Villa’s ambitions

Emiliano Martinez has to be the first name on the team sheet. The World Cup-winning custodian is an integral part of Aston Villa’s ambitions and keeps attackers at bay with his sensational shot-stopping ability.

RB – Matty Cash 

Matty Cash’s pre-season form is encouraging for Aston Villa fans. He scored recently in a friendly against Brentford in a 3-3 draw. The full-back loves to make darting runs forward and contribute to the attack, which makes him dangerous and vital to the team.

CB – Pau Torres

Pau Torres was an important acquisition for Unai Emery. The left-footed centre-back will play his first season in the Premier League and showed good form in pre-season as well. His partnership with Konsa will be interesting to witness.

CB – Ezri Konsa

Ezri Konsa takes his place in the heart of defence alongside Pau Torres. The centre-back is brilliant at winning aerial duels and is also a threat in the opposition box during corners. Unai Emery trusts the 25-year-old to forge a strong partnership with Torres.

LB – Alex Moreno

Alex Moreno is the first choice in the left-back position. Fans are excited to see him in action as he recovers from a hamstring injury ahead of the new season. His life at Aston Villa got off to a strong start and is likely to stay the course.

CM – Boubacar Kamara

Boubacar Kamara has established himself as one of the finest holding midfielders in the Premier League last term. The midfielder is crucial to Aston Villa as he provides cover to the defence and makes key ball recoveries and interceptions to break up opposition attacks.

RCM – Douglas Luiz

Douglas Luiz is the workhorse in the midfield for Aston Villa and provides impeccable balance to the team. The Brazilian international started 33 games in the league out of 38 for the side. He will be one of the regulars in the lineup during the season.

LCM – John McGinn

John McGinn is the club captain and will take his place in the midfield for Aston Villa. The Scottish international has been at the club since 2018 and continues to play an integral role in its success. The box-to-box midfielder provides balance in defence and makes late runs in the box to help the attack as well.

RW – Moussa Diaby

Moussa Diaby is a major signing for Aston Villa and the fans cannot wait to see him in action during the 2023-24 season. The extremely quick winger has already scored for the club in pre-season and is showing a great hunger to succeed with the outfit. He scored 14 goals and made 11 assists for Bayer Leverkusen across all competitions last season. 

LW – Leon Bailey

Leon Bailey’s second season with Aston Villa is expected to be interesting as the winger comes to terms with the demands of the Premier League. The 25-year-old scored five times and made four assists in all competitions for the side last term and is determined to do better in the upcoming season.

ST – Ollie Watkins

Ollie Watkins is one of the players to watch out for in the Premier League’s 2023-24 campaign. The striker leads Aston Villa’s forward line with conviction. He scored 15 goals in the league and provided six assists as well in the previous campaign.
