Jordan Lyden could be a key player for Villa in the Championship next season, as they edge closer to the drop.

Aston Villa look to be heading to the Championship without much of a fight following Sunday’s 6-0 home defeat by Liverpool, so their key player over the final dozen games certainly isn’t one that has appeared on a regular basis in a dismal campaign to date.

Jordan Lyden came on to make his league debut for the club as a substitute in the heavy defeat to the Reds, and the Australian midfielder could get many minutes between now and the end of the season with Remi Garde likely to start preparing for next term in England’s second-tier.

The 20-year-old impressed on his full debut against Wycombe in the Villans’ FA Cup replay win last month, receiving praise from Garde, and the club couldn’t really do any worse than fielding some of their promising youngsters at the moment!
