The Toffees, who were the subject of a £175m takeover at the weekend, make just the one change from their 1-0 loss to West Bromwich Albion last time out in the league, as Kevin Mirallas comes in for Tom Cleverley.
Mark Bunn loses his place between the sticks to Brad Guzan and falls to the bench, while Jordan Ayew returns from a three-game suspension. Micah Richards and Ciaran Clark come in while the men to make way are Jores Okore, Jordan Veretout and Carles Gil.
Aston Villa: Guzan; Richards, Clark, Lescott; Hutton, Cissokho; Bacuna, Westwood, Gana; Ayew, Agbonlahor
Subs: Bunn, Okore, Sinclair, Veretout, Gil, Lyden, Gestede
Everton: Robles; Oviedo, Funes Mori, Jagielka, Coleman; Barry, McCarthy; Mirallas, Barkley, Lennon; Lukaku
