Villa's players are currently training at home after the club shut their Bodymoor Heath training ground due to the coronavirus outbreak.
With Hourihane said: “I'm hoping we will get back into training next week, that is the plan. Just to touch base with a few of the lads again and get in and see them.
“Keep that belief and sharpness going for whenever we get called upon to start again.
“That belief has to be there and you know we will be doing all we can to be ready for the next time we are called upon."
