Tim Sherwood’s side currently have the most injuries in the Premier League, 10 according to Physioroom.

Forwards Gabriel Agbonlahor – who scored in Villa’s 1-0 win at Anfield in September – and Scott Sinclair are both expected to miss the game, along with long-term absentee Libor Kozak.

In midfield, they’re expected to be without Carlos Sanchez, Ashley Westwood and new signing Carles Gil.

In defence, Alan Hutton, Philippe Senderos, Cieran Clark and Aly Cissoko are all either doubts or definitely ruled out.

Possible Villa XI: Guzan, Rich, Vlaar, Baker, Bacuna, Delph, Cleverley, Grealish, N’Zogbia, Benteke, Weimann.
