Charles N'Zogbia replaces the injured Gabriel Agbonlahor for Aston Villa's Premier League match with Fulham, who hand recalls to Kieron Richardson and Urby Emanuelson.
Aston Villa are without in-form striker Gabriel Agbonlahor for the Premier League visit of Fulham this afternoon.
The 26-year-old has scored three goals in his last four games to help Villa climb out of the relegation zone.
Charles N'Zogbia is the man handed the responsibility of replacing him in the only change made by manager Paul Lambert from their win at Stoke City last weekend.
Fulham, meanwhile, make two midfield alterations from the XI that started the stoppage-time defeat to Newcastle United last weekend.
Kieran Richardson and Urby Emanuelson are selected on the wing for the Cottagers, while Eyong Enoh passes a fitness test to continue in the centre of the park.
Villa: Guzan; Lowton, Vlaar, Baker, Bennett; Bowery, Delph, Westwood, N'Zogbia; Weimann, Benteke
Fulham: Schwarzer; Riether, Senderos, Hangeland, Richardson; Duff, Karagounis, Enoh, Emanuelson; Ruiz; Berbatov
Lambert: 'Agbonlahor has impressed me' >
