TEAM NEWS

Midfielder Douglas Luiz and right back Matty Cash are suspended after referee Mike Dean's card-fest in the previous game so Dean Smith brings in Marvelous Nakamba and Ahmed Elmohamady respectively whilst winger Anwar El Ghazi replaces midfielder Jacob Ramsey who drops to the bench and Kortney Hause replaces the ill Ezri Konsa at centre back. Midfielder Ross Barkley and winger Trรฉzรฉguet remain absent with injury with the latter suffering a hamstring injury having recovered from a head injury that had kept him out of the previous game.

โ€‹For Marvelous Nakamba, Anwar El Ghazi and Kortney Hause it is their first league starts of the season.

โ€‹There is a reshuffle on the bench as Neil Taylor, Bjรถrn Engels and Keinan Davis return.

MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* *Thursday 17th December* โ€‹"We had enough chances to win two games, maybe even three. โ€My concern is when you're not getting chances. โ€‹"We look like a team unlikely to concede goals as well, when you do that you'll accumulate points."
