The Norwegian international missed the Carling Cup quarter-final victory over Portsmouth at Fratton Park in midweek with a hamstring strain.

Carew must wait to see whether he regains his starting spot after a resurgent Emile Heskey has netted twice in the past three games.

Central defender James Collins is again ruled out with a calf problem and Carlos Cuellar will again partner Richard Dunne at the heart of the back four.

Villa (from): Friedel, Guzan, Luke Young, Cuellar, Dunne, Warnock, Milner, Downing, Petrov, Reo-Coker, Sidwell, Delph, Gardner, Ashley Young, Agbonlahor, Heskey, Carew, Delfouneso, Beye, Clark.
