Fulham v Aston Villa line-ups: Sessegnon returns, Hogan starts as Villa make five changes

Fulham have restored Ryan Sessegnon to the starting line-up for the visit of Aston Villa.

The teenager starts as a left-winger in front of Scott Malone, a position in which he thrived in the 3-1 win at Newcastle last month.

Sone Aluko moves up front to replace Chris Martin, who starts a three-match ban having lost his appeal against the red card he received at Norwich on Good Friday.

The Whites are otherwise unchanged from the side which won at Carrow Road.

Aston Villa, who have only a top-half place to play for, make five changes following defeat to Reading on Saturday.

Manager Steve Bruce has switched to a back three, with starts for James Bree, Tommy Elphick, Gary Gardner, Jack Grealish and former Brentford marksman Scott Hogan, who plays up front with Jonathan Kodjia.

Alan Hutton, Conor Hourihane, Henri Lansbury, Leandro Bacuna and former Harrow Borough winger Albert Adomah all make way.

Fulham: Bettinelli; Fredericks, Kalas, Ream, Malone; McDonald, Johansen; Aluko, Cairney, Sessegonon; Ayite.
Subs: Button, Madl, Sigurdsson, Parker, Kebano, Piazon, Cyriac.

Aston Villa: Johnstone; Chester, Elphick, Baker; Bree, Jedinak, Gardner, Grealish, Amavi; Hogan, Kodjia.
Subs: Bunn, Hutton, Lansbury, Hourihane, Bacuna, Adomah, Hepburn-Murphy.
