Aston Villa U21s mean business with Mark Delaney naming strong team for Charlton trophy clash

Asia's Tech News Daily

Mark Delaney has named his starting line-up for the Papa John’s Trophy tie against Charlton.

The under-21s coach has gone strong in the hope of repeating victories over other League One opponents in this season’s competition.

Villa have already beaten Milton Keynes Dons, Burton Albion and Wycombe Wanderers, and shown real character whilst doing so. In each of these ties they fell behind but battled back to progress.

Involved tonight will be striker Cameron Archer, who won the EFL Trophy Player of the Round award for his performances in the group stages.

Tonight’s starting XIs are likely to be greatly chopped and changed as the tie progresses given that clubs are now able to make five substitutes from seven nominated players this week. They will get three opportunities to make changes (not including half-time) and unused substitutions can be carried over into extra time if necessary.

Delaney often opts for the same 4-3-3 formation that Steven Gerrard utilises in the first team, which could explain why so many youngsters are seeing an increased involvement in the senior squad.

Caleb Chukwuemeka missed the previous game through injury but has since made his return to the squad, scoring in the under 23s’ 4-1 win against Burnley last week. He has two assists in the EFL Trophy already but will be keen to get off the mark in terms of his goal scoring this evening.

Charlton make 11 changes from their most recent League One fixture. Charlie Kirk and Charles Clayden are likely to operate wing-back roles for the hosts. As well as a front two of Stockley and Mason Burstow.

Villa’s starting XI: Zych, Philogene-Bidace, Archer, Bogarde, Chrisene, Caleb Chukwuemeka, Iroegbunam, Swinkels, Feeney, Ealing and Thorndike.

Charlton starting XI: Harness, Gunter, Stockley (C), Morgan, Kirk, Arter, Watson, Clayden, Bakrin, Burstow and Elerewe.
