Villa boss David O'Leary is already without Milan Baros, while Juan Pablo Angel has a similar ankle problem, although the Colombian has more chance of being fit to face David Moyes' side.
Meanwhile, midfielder James Milner has been advised to rest for a week after undergoing tests on the virus which kept him out of last week's Premiership game at Blackburn plus the defeat at Eastlands.
