Villa have made two changes for this afternoon's Barclays Premier League clash against Everton.

Christian Benteke makes his first since recovering from a hip flexor injury, while summer signing Aleksandar Tonev is also named in the line-up.

Libor Kozak and Karim El Ahmadi drop to the bench.

Everton have made one change from last weekend's 2-1 win over Hull City.

Steven Piennar replaces Leon Osman in midfield.

He partners former Villa skipper Gareth Barry in the central ground.
