Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez and midfielder Douglas Luiz will play in today's Premier League clash against Wolves just 36 hours after featuring for Argentina and Brazil respectively in a World Cup qualifier.

The 29-year-old kept a clean sheet as the Albiceleste beat Peru 1-0 on Thursday night in Buenos Aires, before beginning his flight back to Britain in the early hours of Friday morning.

Despite the short turnaround, Martinez was named in Villa's starting XI against their Midlands rival at Villa Park on Saturday.
