Villa boss Lambert says Lowton could make Chelsea clash
Up until Saturday, Lowton had played every minute of Villa's Premier League and Capital One Cup campaign with his only rest coming in the FA Cup third-round win over Ipswich.
"He's just hurt his thigh," confirmed Lambert.
"He hurt his thigh on Monday and he felt it on Saturday.
"It was a little risk, but I don't think it's too bad."
