Football - Villa wait on Vlaar and Baker

Aston Villa will assess the condition of defenders Ron Vlaar and Nathan Baker ahead of Monday's Barclays Premier League home clash with Arsenal.

PA Sport Report

Both club captain Vlaar and Baker sat out last weekend's FA Cup third-round loss to Sheffield United with calf and hamstring problems respectively.

Forward Gabriel Agbonlahor, who also missed the cup tie, and goalkeeper Brad Guzan are fit despite having had niggles, but the game is too soon for midfielder Chris Herd and defender Joe Bennett to make their comebacks after injury.
