Aston Villa v QPR line-ups: Rangers ring changes and alter shape, Villa duo return

QPR have made five changes for the visit to Aston Villa, with Sean Goss making only his second start since joining from Manchester United.

Massimo Luongo, Jamie Mackie, Yeni Ngbakoto and Idrissa Sylla all come into the starting line-up as boss Ian Holloway freshens the side up after Friday’s defeat at Derby.

Ryan Manning, James Perch, Matt Smith, Conor Washington and Pawel Wszolek make way – all are named among the substitutes, alongside Matt Ingram and Michael Petrasso.

Aston Villa bring midfielder Leandro Bacuna back into their side after a six-match ban for putting his head into a linesman’s face, while Jordan Amavi is also recalled.

Former Brentford marksman Scott Hogan, though, is only on the bench after he limped out of Saturday’s win over Norwich with an ankle injury.

Aston Villa: Johnstone; Hutton, Chester, Baker, Taylor; Bacuna, Jedinak, Lansbury, Amavi; Adomah, Kodjia.
Subs: Bunn, Bree, Elphick, Hourihane, Green, Grealish, Hogan.

QPR: Smithies; Furlong, Onuoha, Hall, Bidwell; Freeman, Goss, Luongo, Ngbakoto; Mackie, Sylla.
Subs: Ingram, Perch, Manning, Petrasso, Wszolek, Washington.
