Villa forward Andreas Weimann is in contention for a recall.

The Austrian came off the bench against Liverpool on Saturday having not trained all week because of an ankle injury.

Midfielder Gary Gardner was also a used substitute despite struggling with a virus.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis is set to freshen up his side.

The contest at Villa Park comes 48 hours after the Potters’ 2-1 home victory over Wolves and Pulis has indicated he will utilise some players who did not feature against Wanderers.

Among them could be defender Andy Wilkinson, who had been nursing a groin complaint in the build-up to Saturday’s game and was not a part of the matchday squad.

Aston Villa (from): Given, Guzan, Hutton, Lichaj, Herd, Collins, Warnock, Baker, Bannan, Gardner, Ireland, Agbonlahor, Heskey, Weimann, Marshall, Johnson, Stevens, Williams, Carruthers.

Stoke (from): Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Shawcross, Wilkinson, Upson, Shotton, Wilson, Woodgate, Whelan, Whitehead, Etherington, Pennant, Delap, Palacios, Jones, Jerome, Crouch, Walters, Fuller.
