Villa v Sheff Utd training pictures: Players get set for cup tie

Here's some exclusive pictures of Villa's players in training ahead of the FA Cup third round clash against Sheffield United.

The road to Wembley begins for Paul Lambert's team this weekend with a tricky tie against the League One outfit.

Villa head into the game in good spirits after the New Year's Day victory at Sunderland.

And although Lambert is expected to make changes to his starting line-up, the claret and blues will still be keen to progress to round four.

One man in particular who will be relishing the clash is Matt Lowton, who is set to come up against his former club.

Ron Vlaar could miss out after going off with a calf injury against Sunderland, while Libor Kozak is set to miss the rest of the campaign after suffering a broken leg in training.
