Strikers Christian Benteke and Jordan Bowery, plus midfielder Ashley Westwood, are in contention to start against the unbeaten Swans.
Benteke, a £7million signing from Genk, impressed Lambert when in midweek action for Belgium against Croatia. Defender Richard Dunne (groin) and winger Marc Albrighton (foot) are still ruled out although the latter will return to training next week.
Injuries and suspension will force Swans manager Michael Laudrup into a defensive reshuffle at Villa.
Neil Taylor is out for the season after breaking his ankle against Sunderland, while Chico Flores starts a three-match ban after his red card in that game. Kyle Bartley (ruptured quad) and Garry Monk (back) are also out.
Ben Davies and Alan Tate are set to come into the back four with new arrival Dwight Tiendalli on the bench. Ki Sung-yueng and record signing Pablo Hernandez are also set to be named among the substitutes.
