Christian Benteke looks set to return to Aston Villa's starting line-up against Everton on Saturday following his recent hip injury.

The Belgian striker returned to action as a substitute in last week's 2-0 Premier League defeat by Tottenham, but should start against the Toffees at Villa Park.

Defender Ciaran Clark is available after missing the Spurs match due to illness, leaving long-term absentees Jores Okore (knee), Charles N'Zogbia (Achilles) and Gary Gardner (back) as Paul Lambert's only casualties.
