Aston Villa: Ashley Preece shares Carney Chukwuemeka boost

Aston Villa: Ashley Preece shares Carney Chukwuemeka boost -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa will have Carney Chukwuemeka available against Leeds United this evening, Ashley Preece reports.

The Lowdown: Chukwuemeka’s absence

Chukwuemeka, labelled as ‘outstanding’ by Paul Merson following his full Premier League debut this season, has missed the last two fixtures with a slight injury.

How would you rate Villa's transfer window?

Absolutely brilliant!

It's been alright!

Steven Gerrard’s side have recorded back-to-back wins without the 18-year-old and are now gearing up for a trip to Elland Road. A win will take Villa into the top half, and Chukwuemeka could well make a return to the matchday squad.

The Latest: Back in the group

Preece shared an injury update on Birmingham Live on Wednesday morning following Gerrard’s pre-match press conference.

When it came to Chukwuemeka, he said that the midfielder ‘will join the group’ ahead of the clash with Jesse Marsch’s side.

Villa fans! Do you remember which club James Milner left AVFC for?

The Verdict: Another boost

Gerrard now has a near fully fit squad to choose from, with Ezri Konsa and Lucas Digne also available after missing out on the weekend.

The update on Chukwuemeka is therefore another welcome boost, and you’d expect he could return to the bench in Yorkshire.

That will give Gerrard another option to call upon, with the boss also needing to make calls on Konsa and Digne following Calum Chambers and Ashley Young’s impressive displays against Southampton last time out.
