Team News
 Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert will welcome back a quartet of players but has fitness concerns over two others for the home Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday. 

 Darren Bent (foot), Nathan Baker (head) and Karim El Ahmadi (ankle) are all in contention to face the Reds. Fabian Delph is available after a two-game suspension. 

 Ciaran Clark and Brett Holman suffered shoulder and hamstring injuries respectively while on international duty and will be assessed over the weekend. 

 Meanwhile, Liverpool have goalkeeper Jose Reina and defender Jamie Carragher fit again for Sunday's trip. 

 The pair missed the defeat at Southampton almost a fortnight ago with calf and shin injuries respectively but have subsequently recovered. 

 All players have returned from international duty without reporting any problems but Fabio Borini and Joe Allen and Martin Kelly remain absent. 

Match Notes
 Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool remake is gradually showing signs of progress but it may still come too late to end their painful exile from the Champions League. 

 The dreadful performance at Southampton apart, Liverpool's recent charge up the table has provided Rodgers with cause for optimism and Sunday's trip to Villa Park represents another opportunity to convince the likes of Luis Suárez there is something worth sticking around for. 

 Paul Lambert has a more humble target this season but his mission of Premier League survival appears set to be accomplished after two morale-boosting victories in a row. 

Betting: Home 16-5, Away 4-6, Draw 5-2. 

Stat of the game: If Villa win they will be able to claim their first home and away double over Liverpool for 20 years.
