The 25-year-old has missed the last 12 matches with a shin injury, but the midfielder returned to training this week and there could be a chance for him to feature off the bench at Villa Park.
Ollie Watkins was shown two yellow cards in the defeat to Manchester United last weekend and so he will serve a one-match suspension, which could see striker Wesley start his first game for Villa since New Year's day 2020, after recovering from a cruciate knee ligament injury.
Dean Smith may be tempted to freshen his side up with one or two changes, although the ever-present defensive quartet of Matty Cash, Tyrone Mings, Ezri Konsa and Matt Targett are all set to keep their places in the first XI.
Aston Villa possible starting XI: Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; Nakamba, McGinn; Traore, Barkley, El Ghazi; Wesley
