BirminghamLive’s latest Aston Villa news as Unai Emery’s team gets ready for their matchup with AZ Alkmaar
Since the beginning of the current season, Aston Villa manager Unai Emery has had to cope with a number of injury setbacks.
In August, Tyrone Mings and Emi Buendia were both declared out for the better part of the season, and injuries to Alex Moreno and Jacob Ramsey have also caused difficulties. It is anticipated that Moreno and Ramsey will be back in action by the end of the next three weeks, possibly even before the November international break.
During the first two months of the season, injuries have also affected Diego Carlos, Bertrand Traore, Boubacar Kamara, Moussa Diaby, Emi Martinez, Leon Bailey, Lender Dendoncker, and Tim Iroegbunam. Here is the most recent injury news ahead of Villa’s match against Alkmaar on Thursday, which kicks off at 5:45 pm.
Due to a hamstring injury, Moreno hasn’t played for Villa since the 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield last season. The left-back was not comfortable enough to play any minutes when he returned to the Crystal Palace matchday squad in September. He also traveled with the Villa squad to face Legia Warsaw.
The foot injury that sidelined Ramsey for ten weeks throughout the summer and the beginning of this season has returned. After recovering from an injury in the loss to Legia Warsaw last month, he started the games against Chelsea and Brighton off the bench, but he will now miss extra weeks of time due to injury.
Tyrone Mings Mings sustained a permanent knee injury during the season-opening loss against Newcastle United.
