Brede Hangeland will miss six weeks' action after surgery to correct a nerve problem in his right leg.

Defender Phillipe Senderos will face a fitness test after playing through a thigh strain in Wednesday's 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham, and Fernando Amorebieta is also doubtful.

Loan striker Darren Bent is unable to play due to Fulham facing his parent club. The Villa forward has a hamstring strain in any case. Kieran Richardson is a doubt with hamstring trouble.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert faces defensive issues ahead of his side's Barclays Premier League clash at Fulham on Sunday.

Skipper Ron Vlaar is doubtful with a calf injury that forced him off in the midweek win at Southampton, whilst Antonio Luna is struggling with a groin problem, added to which Joe Bennett continues to recover from a back issue that has kept him out since the end of September.

Lambert must also decide whether to recall Christian Benteke to the starting line-up after relegating the striker to a sub's role at the St Mary's Stadium.
