Ezri Konsa set to miss out for Aston Villa

Villa are likely to be without Ezri Konsa for Saturday’s trip to Everton as the defender struggles with a hip injury.

Konsa was forced off at half-time during last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Manchester United and is expected to miss the clash with the currently managerless Toffees.

Kortney Hause is poised to start alongside Tyrone Mings with the pair currently Villa’s only fit senior centre-backs following the departure of Manchester United loanee Axel Tuanzebe. Adding more depth to the backline has become a priority for boss Steven Gerrard in the transfer window.

Villa are also in talks with Hause over a new contract. The club have the option to extend the former Wolves man’s current deal by a further year this summer but are keen to tie him down for the longer term.
