Perez dropped and Jonas Gutierrez returns on the bench
Perez dropped and Jonas Gutierrez returns on the bench as Riviere, Obertan, Abeid and Ameobi recalled.
Big changes for John Carver as he picks his starting eleven in a game that is surely a must win against arguably the worst team in the Premier League.
They may be second bottom but with six defeats in a row, Villa look to be heading only one way.
Carver has Colback suspended and has also dropped Anita, Gouffran and Perez in a much changed line-up.
Starting 11 v Villa:
Krul, Janmaat, Williamson, Coloccini, Haidara, Obertan, Abeid, Sissoko, Ameobi, Riviere, Cisse
On the bench:
Woodman, Ryan Taylor, Anita, Gouffran, Gutierrez, Perez, Armstrong
