Forward Andreas Weimann is in contention for a recall for Aston Villa's match at home to Stoke tomorrow.

Among them could be defender Andy Wilkinson, who had been nursing a groin complaint in the build-up to yesterday's game and was not a part of the matchday squad.
Provisional squad: Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Shawcross, Wilkinson, Upson, Shotton, Wilson, Woodgate, Whelan, Whitehead, Etherington, Pennant, Delap, Palacios, Jones, Jerome, Crouch, Walters, Fuller.
