There were doubts before the game for Harry Redknapp's side over Sandro and Nedum Onuoha. The latter is not in the squad but Sandro is in the starting line-up.

Adel Taarabt, who has been involved in a very public falling out with Redknapp since last weekend, is not in the squad - however is exclusion is understood to be due to illness.

Paul Lambert's Villa have lost their last four games - and as they look to bring that run to an end - they will have to do so without the impressive Philippe Senderos whose thigh injury keeps him out.

Christian Benteke continues in attack.
