Team news live from Villa Park for Aston Villa vs LOSC Lille in the UEFA Europa Conference League.

Unai Emery and Paulo Fonseca have named their starting lineups and substitutes for this evening’s UEFA Europa Conference League quarter-final first leg tie between Aston Villa and LOSC Lille.

The Villans are unchanged from Saturday’s 3-3 draw against Brentford, perhaps surprising a few due to the upcoming Premier League away trip to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon. The only potential change is John McGinn sitting deeper and Youri Tielemans moving up top alongside Ollie Watkins, but that awaits to be seen.
