Newly appointed Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is considering recently released Kolo Toure as the solution to his backline problems ahead of the Champions League qualifying rounds. The former Liverpool manager is also keen to sign Scott Sinclair from Aston Villa in a bid to bolster the attack.

Chelsea travel to Villa Park on Saturday and will hope to get their second win in 6 games in all competitions. Manager Guus Hiddink will have to assess the form and fatigue of players who have returned after 2 weeks of international duty as they go to face an unpredictable Aston Villa side playing their first game since the departure of manager Remi Garde.
