Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke is having physiotherapy in his native Belgium to treat knee and hip injuries and will not face Crystal Palace.
Ron Vlaar (calf) remains a major doubt and Ashley Westwood is suspended, but Gabby Agbonlahor returns from a ban.
Crystal Palace striker Marouane Chamakh serves a one-match suspension for amassing five bookings this season.
Midfielders Kagisho Dikgacoi and Stuart O'Keefe will miss a second successive match with muscular injuries.
Never mind the 12 days of Christmas, the 12 goals of Christmas still haunt Aston Villa.
At this stage last season, Villa went into their Boxing Day clash with Spurs at Villa Park after an 8-0 thrashing at Chelsea. They conceded another four without reply to Tottenham and then finished the year with a 3-0 loss at home to Wigan.
A year on, they now face Crystal Palace in the first of successive home games - and they really need to be looking to win them both. Defeat at Stoke last time out was their third in a row and they can ill-afford any more slip ups.
Villa currently have a six-point cushion between themselves and the danger zone but if they're not careful they could soon find themselves in a whole heap of trouble, especially when you bear in mind that they kick off 2014 with what is already looking like a pivotal fixture at lowly Sunderland.
The sooner Christian Benteke is fit and firing, the better; undoubtedly he's being missed at present. Villa have managed just one goal in their last three outings, although Gaby Agbonlahor should return against a Palace side who have the opportunity to climb out of the bottom three with a win.
The Eagles may have lost the last two but Tony Pulis has improved the organisation in the team in recent weeks. An obvious blow for Palace is the absence of in-form striker Marouane Chamakh, who is suspended.
Pulis described their performance against Newcastle last time out as the worst since he took over. For me, that makes them even more dangerous - he will not stand for another display like that.
Villa have won just one of their last 12 Boxing Day fixtures and this season have picked up only two wins on their own turf. Palace have managed one win and four goals on their travels. This is going to be tense.

The away side has not won this fixture in the last 13 league and cup meetings since a 1-0 top-flight victory for Crystal Palace in September 1991.
The most recent fixture between the sides was an FA Cup fifth-round replay in February 2010 which Aston Villa won 3-1.

Aston Villa
Villa have only earned 45 points from their last 46 Premier League matches at Villa Park, losing half of those fixtures (W11, D12, L23).
They have failed to score in four of their last five Premier League home games. Villa's tally of six goals at home is the lowest in the division and they are the only side yet to score in the first half in front of their own fans.
Paul Lambert has won more away league games (eight) as manager of Aston Villa than he has at home (seven).
The Villans have won only one of their last 12 Boxing Day matches - a 4-0 home victory over Everton in 2005 (W1, D4, L7).
They have only led at half-time on two occasions, fewer than any other top-flight side bar Cardiff (none).

Crystal Palace
No team has picked up fewer away points than Crystal Palace this season (three, level with Sunderland).
They have only scored four goals in eight away matches.
Palace have followed up successive league wins with consecutive defeats.
According to Opta, they have the lowest average possession figure in the Premier League this season (40.3%). The team with the second lowest figure is Aston Villa (42.2%).
Barry Bannan made 83 league and cup appearances for Villa, scoring two goals, before joining Palace on transfer deadline day earlier this season.
