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.

Birkir Bjarnason of Iceland looks on after the international friendly match between Iceland and Czech Republic at Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium on November 8, 2017 in Doha, Qatar.

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.

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.”
