Burnley came through the match against Manchester United unscathed but may make changes, with Erik Pieters, Danny Drinkwater, Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Jay Rodriguez among those hoping for a chance.
Charlie Taylor, Jeff Hendrick and Ashley Barnes seem most at risk following abject displays at the weekend.
Matt Targett joins Villa’s treatment room following a hamstring strain but had been struggling for form regardless. The question is whether Smith goes for a natural left sided full-back in Neil Taylor or fields Frederic Guilbert out of position.
Tyrone Mings is nearing a return, and his potential involvement could even see Kortney Hause deputise on the left.
After a woeful performance at Watford changes are a certainty, with Jack Grealish surely in line to move back into a more central position.
