Glenn Whelan and Mile Jedinak return to the starting XI for today’s encounter with Bristol City.
Whelan replaces the ill Jack Grealish and is installed as captain.
Jedinak comes in for the suspended Tyrone Mings, who saw red in the win at Rotherham United.
Alan Hutton is on the bench after just over a month out of action – and is joined there by Young Lion Jacob Ramsey.
Matija Sarkic continues in the 18 in place of the absent Lovre Kalinic.
Kick-off this afternoon is 3pm.
The claret and blues are looking for eight wins in succession, something we’ve not achieved since the 1974/75 campaign.
Team: Steer, Elmohamady, Tuanzebe, Jedinak, Taylor; Whelan ©, McGinn, Hourihane; El Ghazi, Adomah, Abraham. Subs: Sarkic, Lansbury, Davis, Green, Bjarnason, Hutton, Ramsey.
