Aston Villa has announced their squad numbers for the upcoming 2022/23 Premier League season.
At the Vitality Stadium on Saturday at 3 p.m., Villa will take on Scott Parker’s newly promoted Bournemouth to open the new season. In the most recent season opener between Villa and the Cherries, in 2015–16, new signing Rudy Gestede scored the game-winning goal with a header.
Steven Gerrard, the manager of Villa, will be hoping for a similar outcome on Saturday but will have quite different goals from last season, when Villa went on to suffer relegation.
