Aston Villa fans on social networking site Twitter have called on manager Steve Bruce to include Birkir Bjarnason in the starting lineup against Queens Park Rangers at home this evening.
Villa will take on QPR at Villa Park in the Championship in a few hours’ time.
The Villans will head into the match on the back of a 4-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at home in the league.
Bjarnason scored in the 85th minute of the encounter against Wolves, although the 29-year-old central midfielder came on as a substitute in the 75th minute.
The Iceland international, who has been on the books of Villa since January 2017 when he joined from FC Basel for a transfer fee reported by The Birmingham Mail to be worth £2.5 million, has made only seven starts in the Championship so far this season, scoring two goals and providing one assist in the process.
Villa fans want Bjarnason to start for the Villans against QPR at Villa Park in the Championship this evening.

Bjarnason deserves more game time Vs QPR, Bolton. Was unlucky to miss out recently. Written off too soon also.— MrAstonVilla (@villa1st) March 11, 2018
Bjarnason to start in place of Jedi. Thats it. Lansbury and Hogan of the bench.— Chez Avfc (@AvfcUTV1) March 10, 2018
Brilliant solo goal by Bjarnason, deserves a start against QPR— Will (@will_avfc) March 10, 2018
Plenty of goals in us at the min, the only change I can think of is potentially N’Golo Bjarnason bak in!! But that would be harsh on Mike. Every1 player well 2 be fair— David Wilde (@avfc_david) March 11, 2018
Aston Villa midfielder Mile Jedinak worked with QPR manager Ian Holloway at Crystal Palace, and he told The Birmingham Mail: “We did some analysis on them last week before we were supposed to play them and they’ve got different threats in different areas.
“We expect a tough game, there’s no doubt about it. Ollie always puts his teams out to have a go so they will be on the front foot for sure and we’re going to have to be right at it to hurt them.”
