The Villans' form has improved remarkably in recent weeks, with their victory away to Stoke City last weekend their third win from four in the league.
Fulham could do with another win to completely ease any fears of the drop having had their run of five league games without defeat ended by Newcastle United on Sunday.
Fulham will have to make do without Ashkan Dejagah who has been ruled out for the rest of the season but Eyong Enoh, who had to be subbed off against Newcastle, could play. Steve Sidwell will serve the second game of his three-match suspension.
Possible starting lineups
Villa: Guzan; Lowton, Vlaar, Baker, Bennett; Bowery, Delph, Westwood, Weimann; Agbonlahor, Benteke
Fulham: Schwarzer; Riether, Hangeland, Senderos, Riise; Duff, Karagounis, Enoh, Emanuelson; Ruiz; Berbatov
Sports Mole says: 2-1
