Villa boss Houllier recalls Dunne for Chelsea clash

Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier will welcome defender Richard Dunne back into his plans for today's clash with Chelsea.

Dunne clashed with assistant manager Garry McAllister over tactics in a training session last month, although this has been played down by Houllier.

He said: "Dunne is back because his performances have improved in training.

"He was never out of the team because of some bust-up I was reading about.

"He had a word which lasted half a second with Macca (McAllister). I took him out of team because he was under performing and he was not the only one.

"I have watched all the training he has done and I think I'll give him the chance."
