Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has recovered from sickness in time to face Arsenal in Sunday’s FA Cup fourth round clash at the Emirates Stadium.

Agbonlahor had to be substituted at half-time because of the bug during last weekend’s win at Wolves. Fellow striker Emile Heskey (Achilles) and midfielder Stephen Ireland (hamstring) are also back in contention after resuming training.

But winger Charles N’Zogbia’s heel problem means he is ruled out against the Gunners and joins defender Carlos Cuellar (calf) and midfielder Chris Herd (ankle) on the current injury list.

Provisional squad: Given, Guzan, Hutton, Lichaj, Collins, Dunne, Warnock, Bannan, Clark, Petrov, Ireland, Albrighton, Bent, Keane, Agbonlahor, Heskey, Weimann, Marshall, Johnson, Gardner, Stevens.
