Steve Cook is back available following suspension but the treatment room at Bournemouth is still a busy one.
Philip Billing is a doubt due to a back injury and could miss out from the crucial 3-1 win over Brighton, with Dan Gosling and Lewis Cook competing to replace the young Dane.
Having come through their Carabao Cup semi-final unscathed and full of confidence, Villa could name an unchanged lineup.
The two potential changes could come at either end of the pitch, with Pepe Reina left out on Tuesday as a precaution with a calf problem and a doubt, with Orjan Nyland impressing in the Spaniard’s absence.
In attack, Villa have gone from having no senior strikers to two, and Keinan Davis’ impact from the bench has given Dean Smith a dilemma as to whether or not to stick with new signing Ally Samatta.
