Westwood (illness) has overcome his ordeal with a stomach bug and will likely be available for Saturday's matchup against Chelsea, the International Business Times reports.

Westwood has received significant time on the pitch this season and seems to be fit enough to play Saturday. He's been a reliable starter for manager Paul Lambert but doesn't offer much in the way of goal scoring.

Westwood was one of the many Aston Villa players who came down with a stomach bug during the Arsenal match Saturday.

Manager Paul Lambert has decided to close down Villa's facilities for the rest of the weekend in an attempt to get his players back at full strength. Westwood was ultimately unable to play Saturday and will try to get well before his squad faces Chelsea.

Westwood has played the full 90 minutes in all three of Aston Villa's Premier League matches this season.

Westwood has been a staple of Villa's midfield this season alongside Fabian Delph. Villa's early success can partly be attributed to the play of Westwood, but he and his squad will be challenged as they face Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City in consecutive weeks.

Westwood scored off a free kick in the 13th minute of Aston Villa's 1-4 loss to Manchester United on Saturday.

Westwood's goal was his second this season, with the first one coming back on November 25 against West Brom. He also has two assists this season in 28 appearances, showing his relatively low fantasy value.

Westwood has made nine Premier League appearances for Aston Villa this season and said the team need more from matches than they're receiving, according to the Mirror.

Westwood has five shots and one assist to his credit so far this term, in what has been a decent start to the season for the side considering their opposition.

Westwood is an injury doubt for Saturday's match against Manchester City due to a thigh strain.

Westwood hasn't played in Villa's last two matches and it appears like a long shot that he'll feature against City. The 23-year old midfielder has one assist in four matches this season.
