ASTON VILLA vs CHELSEA – TEAM NEWS

Frank Lampard has a major selection headache ahead of his Chelsea side’s return to Premier League action against Aston Villa this weekend.

The Blues have been boosted by the return to fitness of several key players, although there are doubts around two younger members of the squad.

Reece James suffered a knock in training and missed an in-house friendly last month, although he did feature in a recent 7-1 win over Queens Park Rangers.

The right-back should be in contention to feature this weekend but there are bigger question marks over Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Jorginho is the only player who will definitely miss out at Villa Park as the Italian serves the final match of a two-game ban.

Aston Villa head coach Dean Smith remains without injured defenders Bjorn Engels and Frederic Guilbert.
