Chelsea loanee Ross Barkley is set to return from injury for Aston Villa’s Boxing Day clash against Crystal Palace after being out for a month with hamstring issue.

This was confirmed by Aston Villa boss Dean Smith, who revealed Barkley will start training on Wednesday.

Barkley is on a season-long loan deal at Aston Villa from Chelsea and has made a bright start on loan at Aston Villa.

“We’re expecting Ross Barkley to start training (on Wednesday), which is good news for us,” Villa boss Dean Smith said.

Barkley has missed Aston Villa’s last four games after he was forced off early in the 2-1 defeat at home by Brighton on November 21.
