Villa have made one change for this evening's Barclays Premier League clash against West Bromwich Albion.
Matt Lowton returns to the line-up in place of the injured Gabby Agbonlahor.
It means a potential reshuffle to the system deployed in last week's 2-2 draw at Liverpool, with Leandro Bacuna a contender to move into midfield.
Paul Lambert has handed a home debut to on-loan Chelsea left-back Ryan Bertrand.
VILLA: Guzan, Lowton, Vlaar, Clark, Bertrand, Westwood, El Ahmadi, Delph, Bacuna, Weimann, Benteke. Subs: Steer, Baker, Sylla, Helenius, Albrighton, Holt, Tonev.
WEST BROM: Foster, Reid, Lugano, Olsson, Ridgewell, Morrison, Yacob, Mulumbu, Anelka, Anichebe, Brunt. Subs: Myhill, Jones, McAuley, Dorrans, Vydra, Berahino, Amalfitano.
