Villa have named an unchanged starting XI for the lunchtime clash against Newcastle.
Paul Lambert has kept faith with the team that won 1-0 in last weekend's Barclays Premier League opener at Stoke.
But new signings Carlos Sanchez and Joe Cole are included in the squad, both as substitutes.
Newcastle are also unchanged - sticking with the same team that lost 2-0 to champions Manchester City.
VILLA: Guzan, Hutton, Senderos, Vlaar, Cissokho, Westwood, Delph, Richardson, Weimann, N'Zogbia, Agbonlahor. Subs: Given, Baker, Bacuna, Cole, Bent, Sanchez, Grealish.
NEWCASTLE: Krul; Janmaat, Williamson, Coloccini (c), Dummett; Anita, Colback; Gouffran, Sissoko, Cabella; Riviere. Subs: Elliot, Haidara, S.Taylor, Abeid, Obertan, de Jong, Perez.
