Their match against Tottenham was scheduled for Wednesday night but on Monday, they were replaced by Fulham and the game finished 1-1.
The outbreak at the Midlands club could have seen their FA Cup tie against Liverpool last week called off. Villa fielded players from their Under 23 and Under 18 team and they were beaten 4-1 by a strong Liverpool side.
