Karim El Ahmadi (right): Back for Aston Villa

Aston Villa midfielder Karim El Ahmadi will return after a one-match ban for Saturday's home Premier League clash with Manchester United.

But defender Eric Lichaj will be banned after picking up his fifth yellow card of the campaign during the 1-0 win at Sunderland.

Fellow left-back Joe Bennett is struggling to overcome a knee injury so Enda Stevens is in contention to face Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

Striker Darren Bent is again absent with his ankle injury.

Central defender Jonny Evans is a doubt for United ahead of the trip to Villa Park.

Evans has a niggling groin problem, which may force Ferguson to push Chris Smalling into his second game in four days.

Nani (hamstring) joins Shinji Kagawa, Phil Jones and Nemanja Vidic (all knee) on the sidelines.
