Team News: Mings returns at Turf Moor

Dean Smith has confirmed his team to face Burnley at Turf Moor on New Year's Day, with Tyrone Mings the headline name on the team-sheet. 

The England defender hasn't featured since suffering a hamstring injury in the defeat against Leicester City at Villa Park on 8th December.

Mings will line-up as one of three centre-backs, with Kortney Hause and Ezri Konsa also included in the starting XI. 

Frederic Guilbert also returns alongside Neil Taylor - who will make his first league appearance since the loss at Wolves in November - with the duo set to start as wing-backs.

Here is the team news in full...

Aston Villa XI vs. Burnley: Heaton; Konsa, Mings, Hause; Guilbert, Douglas Luiz, Nakamba, Taylor; Trezeguet, Wesley, Grealish (C).

Subs: Nyland, Elmohamady, Chester, Hourihane, Lansbury, El Ghazi, Kodjia.
