Liverpool v Villa team news: Westwood and Bannan return


Paul Lambert has made four changes to his side for the game against Liverpool.

Brad Guzan returns in place of Shay Given, Ashley Westwood and Barry Bannan come in for Fabian Delph and Karim El Ahmadi while Andreas Weimann replaces the injured Darren Bent.

Lambert looks set to stick with his three-man backline, with Chris Herd, Ciaran Clark and Nathan Baker ready to defend stoutly.

Clark is once again picked as skipper.

VILLA: Guzan, Lowton, Baker, Clark [c], Lichaj, Holman, Westwood, Bannan, Herd, Weimann, Benteke. Subs: Given, Bowery, El Ahmadi, N'Zogbia, Bennett, Delph, Albrighton.

LIVERPOOL: Reina, Johnson, Agger, Skrtel, Downing, Lucas, Allen, Gerrard, Shelvey, Sterling, Suarez. Subs: Jones, Henderson, Carragher, Cole, Coates, Susa, Wisdom.
