Clark should be fit for Liverpool game
Republic of Ireland international should recover in time from a head injury sustained midweek against Chelsea
Aston Villa’s Ciaran Clark.
Clark was forced off in the first half of the 2-1 loss at Chelsea on Wednesday with a head injury but is expected to be fit for the Reds’ visit to Villa Park, while midfielder Chris Herd could be in contention for a first appearance this term following his calf problem.
Defender Nathan Baker (ankle) remains a doubt and winger Charles N’Zogbia (Achilles) definitely misses out.
Aston Villa squad: Guzan, Steer, Baker, Bennett, Vlaar, Okore, Clark, Luna, Lowton, Bacuna, El Ahmadi, Albrighton, Westwood, Delph, Herd, Sylla, Gardner, Tonev, Helenius, Weimann, Agbonlahor, Benteke, Bowery.
