Aston Villa host Burnley this afternoon with one eye on next Saturday’s FA Cup final after their Premier League survival was confirmed last weekend.
Despite a 6-1 thrashing at Southampton, Hull’s subsequent defeat to Tottenham means Tim Sherwood’s men will be playing top-flight football again next season following an impressive revival under the former Spurs manager’s stewardship.
Nevertheless, the Villa boss has fielded a strong side to build some momentum ahead of the Wembley showpiece against Arsenal, with Jed Steer's appearance in goal the only real surprise.
Nathan Baker and Gabriel Agbonlahor also come into the line-up for Alan Hutton and the injured Jores Okore, while there are places on the bench for rookie forwards Callum Robinson and Andre Green.
Visitors Burnley, meanwhile, are dropping back to the Championship after one season and could still finish bottom of the table if they fail to equal Queens Park Rangers’ result at Leicester.
Steven Reid could make his final professional appearance before retirement after being named on the bench, while club leading scorer Danny Ings might be playing his last game for Sean Dyche's side before a summer move.
There is also a full debut for Norwegian midfielder Fredrik Ulvestad, who arrived at the Turf Moor in March on a free transfer.
