Diego Carlos remains out with his ruptured achilles tendon injury.
Deadline day signing Leander Dendoncker will be analysed for the game as he was struggling slightly with his throat in the morning.
Both Nathan Ake and Jack Grealish are fit an avaliable for the fixture however Kalvin Phillips is a doubt for the game.
Aston Villa will host the Manchester City game - at Villa Park - on Saturday at 17:30 which will be shown on Sky Sports.
This game is really vital for Steven Gerrard and his job as manager as he heads into this game losing his last four games in a row.
Aston Villa head into the game placed 19th in the table with one win, that being against Everton whilst Manchester City are currently 2nd in the table with four wins and a singular draw.
However, Villa could face some mercy as the Manchester club face Sevilla in the Champions League groupstage three days later meaning Pep Guardiola may rotate his side so players like Erling Håland, Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo ect may sit the game out on the bench or get limited minutes.
I believe that Steven Gerrard will go back to his usual 4-3-1-2, although we'd all much prefer a 4-3-3, with Philippe Coutinho playing as the 10 and Boubacar Kamara, John McGinn and Douglas Luiz in the midfield whilst Jan Bednarek makes his debut along side Tyrone Mings with international teammate Matty Cash and on the opposite side will be French international Lucas Digne and up top would be the two Englishmen, Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings.
