Emi Martinez and Emi Buendia could return for Aston Villa in Saturday’s Premier League game against Everton after completing their 10-day quarantine in Croatia.

The Argentina internationals are due to arrive back into the UK on Saturday morning and will be assessed before being considered for selection.

They have been training in Croatia since returning from South America following following the farcical scenes which saw Argentina’s game against Brazil suspended.

Croatia is a green list country, meaning Martinez and Buendia are able to avoid having to quarantine in a UK hotel on their return.

Villa boss Dean Smith said: “We are expecting them to join us tomorrow (Saturday) morning and I will assess it then and decide whether they will be involved or not.

“They are in a good place physically.”
