Villa U21 v Chelsea U21 team news: One change for young guns


Villa have made one change for tonight's Barclays U21 Premier League clash against Chelsea.

Lewis Kinsella comes in for Bradley Lewis at left-back in the only change to the starting line-up from last week's 2-0 win at Blackburn.

Daniel Johnson - who scored when Villa won the reverse fixture at Cobham 10 days ago - will skipper Gordon Cowans' team at Villa Park this evening.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are set to field exactly the same team that suffered a 2-1 defeat to Villa on April 4.

Danny Pappoe, Fankaty Dabo and Connor Hunte all featured against the claret and blues in the NextGen Series final in Lake Como on Easter Monday.

Season ticket holders have had their cards activated for free entry to tonight's game, which kicks off at 7.05pm.

AVTV subscribers can watch the clash in full with first team star Andreas Weimann joining Jack Woodward in the commentary box.

VILLA: Siegrist, Webb, Kinsella, Stieber, Donacien, Williams, Crooks, Carruthers, Robinson, Johnson, Grealish. Subs: Bateman, Watkins, Calder, Lyden.

CHELSEA: Blackman, Dabo, Pappoe, Conroy, Deen-Conteh, T Musonda, L Musonda, Ssewankambo, Swift, Hunte. Subs: Gnahore, Beeney, Bangura, Seremba.
