Aston Villa: Fans react to Henri Lansbury’s message following Wolves win

Henri Lansbury bagged two assists and and put in an influential performance during Aston Villa’s 2-1 win over Wolves in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening.

Lansbury set up both of Villa’s goals in their Midlands derby victory over rivals Wolves, putting a well-weighted through ball on a plate for Anwar El Ghazi to squeeze it under John Ruddy.

Later on in the match, almost immediately after Wolves equalised through Patrick Cutrone, Villa took the lead again – with Lansbury directing a good free-kick into the path of Ahmed Elmohamady to bundle it home at the near post.

The 29-year-old put on a fantastic display at Villa park, undoubtedly being the difference between victory and defeat – advancing Dean Smith’s side to the League Cup quarter-finals, where they will host Liverpool, almost single-handedly.

In stark contrast, Lansbury has barely been given a look-in so far this season in the Premier League, playing just nine minutes of the campaign over two brief cameos off the bench.

Following the Englishman’s impeccable performance, he sent a message to the fans on Twitter, stating: “Good win last night!”

In response, Villa supporters praised the midfielder, with some stating he deserved a goal at the end for his outstanding contribution.
