Heung-Min Son (foot), Nabil Bentaleb, Nacer Chadli and Alex Pritchard (all ankle injuries) remain sidelined for the first of a three-match spell in six days next week.
Ryan Mason returned from his knee problem with a 30-minute substitute appearance in Sunday's 5-1 win at Bournemouth.
Mauricio told us earlier today (Friday, October 30): "Yes, the team news is the same at the last game - Nabil, Pritch, Chadli and Son are still out.
"We assess and analyse them every day and hope that they are ready to be in the squad as soon as possible."
After Villa, we face Anderlecht in the Europa League back at the Lane on Thursday night (8.05pm) before the big North London Derby at Arsenal on Sunday (4pm).
