Mings, who was on the bench for the defeat at Bournemouth, has trained after what Villa boss Steven Gerrard described as the England defender having a “couple of down days”.

Emiliano Buendia will also be in the matchday squad after a full week of training, but Kortney Hause remains out with the injury that he picked up at the tail end of last season.

Everton’s new signings Amadou Onana and Conor Coady are expected to be included in Frank Lampard’s squad.

Onana, signed for an undisclosed fee from Lille, and Coady, who joined on a season-long loan from Wolves, could both make their first appearances for the club after arriving this week.

Lampard will be without injured trio Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Yerry Mina and Ben Godfrey, the latter ruled out for up to three months after fracturing a fibula in last week’s opening defeat to Chelsea.

Villa provisional squad: Martinez, Olsen, Cash, Carlos, Konsa, Mings, Chambers, Augustinsson, Young, Guilbert, Digne, Luiz, McGinn, Sanson, Buendia, Nakamba, El Ghazi, Coutinho, Ramsey, Kamara, Ings, Watkins, Traore, Bailey.

Everton provisional squad: Pickford, Holgate, Coady, Mykolenko, Patterson, Tarkowski, Gray, McNeil, Alli, Onana, Doucoure, Iwobi, Gordon, Vinagre, Allan, Gbamin, Warrington, Mills, Begovic, Keane.

What can I read about in the build-up on Independent.ie?

While Everton acquitted themselves quite well in their opening day defeat to Chelsea, the Villans were very disappointing in their loss to newly promoted Bournemouth. Both match reports are here.

What are the match odds?

Aston Villa are odds on favourites at 3/4 with the Toffees 7/2 and the draw priced at 13/5.
