Aston Villa injury news

Ahead of their meeting with Everton in the league, Emery provided a fitness update on his players. Both Tyrone Mings and Emiliano Buendía are both out long-term with knee injuries, while Jacob Ramsey (ankle/foot) still has ‘some weeks’ before he is due to return.

Some good news though is that Durán made his return and Bertrand Traoré was also named on the bench. Emery also said that Alex Moreno is ‘close to being part of us’ as he makes his way back from a thigh injury.
