John McGinn to be rested for Villa’s clash with Norwich

Aston Villa will rest John McGinn for the visit of title-chasing Norwich on Sunday.

The midfielder is on 14 bookings and one more would see him miss Villa’s Sky Bet Championship play-off campaign.

Boss Dean Smith also has to decide whether to risk Tammy Abraham after a shoulder injury or keep him fresh for the play-offs, but Anwar El Ghazi is available after having his red card at Leeds overturned.

Jonathan Kodjia should be fit after getting a knock on the calf in the controversial 1-1 draw at Leeds and Kortney Hause (hip) could return along with goalkeeper Lovre Kalanic (knee).

Norwich need a point to wrap up the Sky Bet Championship title but are without Tom Trybull.

The midfielder has been ruled out with an ankle injury after coming off in the Easter Monday game at Stoke.

Louis Thompson (knee) and Carlton Morris (knee) are back in training but are unlikely to feature.

The already-promoted Canaries are three points ahead of Sheffield United in the race for the title.
