Aston Villa fans on Twitter lauded the performance of Henri Lansbury after he helped his team to a 2-1 win over Wolves in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.
Lansbury hasn’t played many minutes in the Premier League this season, but when he has been given his chance in the EFL Cup, he has taken in with both hands.
Against a much-changed Wolves side, he provided two assists on either side of the half, including a brilliantly weighted pass for Anwar El Ghazi, who opened the scoring on the night.
Both managers made a number of changes to their side, as they were clearly prioritising other games over the League Cup.
But from the players that did take to the field, Villa supporters were pretty pleased with what Lansbury dished out, as he controlled the game, along with Douglas Luiz, and ensured that he is still knocking on Dean Smith’s Premier League door.
Whilst he might not be getting a starting call at home to Liverpool at the weekend, he’s definitely making his manager think a lot more about him.
Added with that, the fans are delighted with what he is producing as they believe that he is showcasing his talents once again and it’s just a case of him staying out of the treatment room for him to prove his worth even further.
Here is a selection of Villa fans reacting to Lansbury’s display against Wolves:
Lansbury might just be the key for big wes to get a few more this season #AVFC
