Lambert On Benteke And Westwood

Lambert On Benteke And Westwood

Ahead of their likely debuts this weekend, Paul Lambert has talked briefly about what he feels Ashley Westwood and Christian Benteke will bring to the team.

Speaking to the Official Site ahead of Swansea game, Lambert first talked about Benteke.

'I think he will be a handful. I watched him against Croatia and he was excellent, the way he played. He is only a young lad but he will be a handful.'

On Westwood he added.

'The opportunity is there for him. I said to him, go and grab it. In training, he has been excellent. It's when the match starts you have to step up the plate which I'm sure he will do.'

Ashley Westwood Forum Thread.

Sounds very much like these two will be playing some part in the game. I think I'd expect Westwood to start, with Benteke coming on in the second half as you'd assume Lambert will lead with Darren Bent and Gabby Agbonlahor?

I expect Bennett & Westwood to start with Benteke coming on as sub. Bowery I expect will be a project and appears ostensibly to be a Benteke-esque understudy.

Got to be difficult to drop anyone after the Newcastle game,why do I feel we are on a roller coaster lol If the manager can keep us guessing must be worse for the oppositions manager.What a great feeling to look forward to the weekends again instead of dreading them like last season

Last season? Villa didn't play any professional football at all last season did they? Sorry it's been etched from my memory!! (We certainly didn't play football professionally lol)

I would stick Benteke up front with DB9 from the start. Gabby on the bench, possibly coming on for the last 20-25 minutes against a tiring defence

Agreed Pride - all going to be based on how they have gelled in training. No-one is guaranteed. No-one should be dropped without reason though - that's just stupid.

Bent hasn't scored for donkeys and he does nothing else half well so if he's not scoring he's useless. He tried hard against Newcastle but his ineptitude was evident. I reckon that's a good reason to drop him to the bench....

Or preferably sold to get him off the wage bill. Our wage bill is too high incase anyone didn't know. What better way to get it down!! I could do fatboy Faulkner's job at this rate.
