Villa v Man City team news: Lambert names unchanged team


Paul Lambert has named an unchanged line-up for tonight's clash against Manchester City.

The Villa boss has kept faith with the team that lost 2-1 at Arsenal at the Emirates last weekend.

Defender Ron Vlaar hasn't recovered from a calf problem, while Darren Bent misses out with a foot injury.

But goalkeeper Shay Given is back from a hamstring strain to take his place on the bench against his former club.

Former Villa midfielder James Milner is named in City's starting line-up, with Gareth Barry among the substitutes.

VILLA: Guzan, Lowton, Clark, Baker, Bennett, Westwood, Delph, N'Zogbia, Agbonlahor, Weimann, Benteke. Subs: Given, Sylla, Holman, Dawkins, Lichaj, El Ahmadi, Bowery.

MAN CITY: Hart, Zabaleta, Clichy, Nastasic, K Toure, Rodwell, Y Toure, Garcia, Silva, Milner, Tevez. Subs: Pantilimon, Lescott, Kolarov, Nasri, Sinclair, Barry, Dzeko.
