The Midlands side have had more days of rest for their squad, while their Merseyside opponents suffered a mid-week defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.
Number two Brad Guzan is likely to start for the Midlands outfit while striker Darren Bent, who has been linked with a move away from Villa Park, should start up front with Gabriel Agbonlahor.
Everton may be forced to make a change in defence as Sylvain Distin limped out of White Hart Lane during the side's 2-0 defeat. The Toffees remain without Phil Jagielka, Jack Rodwell and Leon Osman.
