Latics have more injury woes with Will Grigg looking likely to miss the remainder of the season through a knee injury, Nick Powell, Jakob Haugaard, Donervon Daniels, Reece James are all missing but Sam Morsy returns to the squad following his two game suspension.
There are certain to be changes so this is a complete guess.
Latics possible – Gilks, Connolly, Buxton, Burn, Warnock, MacDonald, Morsy, Jacobs, Gilbey, Obertan, Bogle.
Birkir Bjarnason, Andre Green, Rushian Hepburn-Murphy, Gabby Agbonlahor and Nathan Baker are all injured, whilst Leandro Bacuna is suspended.
Better news for Henri Lansbury, Jack Grealish and Scott Hogan who all returned to training this week.
Villa possible – Johnstone, Bree, Chester, Jedinak, Taylor, Hutton, Gardner, Hourihane, Amavi, Adomah, Kodja
