Ahead of the match at Villa Park, we take a look at how the sides' players Andreas Weimann and Lazar Markovic compare.
Paul Lambert’s Villa side are desperate for goals. His team face a daunting four-game spell now with Liverpool up first before Championship flyers Bournemouth visit for the FA Cup fourth round, before Villa go to the Emirates Stadium before hosting Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.
In between all that, the transfer window offers the struggling midland club an opportunity to bolster their attacking threat. Attacking midfielder Charles Gil, signed from Valencia, could make his debut at the weekend and provide Villa with some flair in front of goal.
