Aston Villa fans on Twitter keen to see Hutton benched despite recent return

Alan Hutton is something of a cult hero at Villa Park. The Villains will always love the Scottish right-back, and his goal against Birmingham earlier in the season only went further to nail on his status as a hero. However, as the Scottish Cafu has returned to fitness, a lot of Villains are calling for him to stay benched given their recent results.

Hutton will be fine with taking his place on the bench, that much is guaranteed. The experienced full-back is Villa through and through and has been through thick and thin with the club in his eight years since signing from Spurs in 2011. However, whilst they love him now and appreciate his loyalty, there’s no way they’re prepared to drop Ahmed Elmohamady given the form of the right-back.

The Egyptian has made the right-back spot his own in the last few weeks, and with Dean Smith masterminding a six-game winning streak, there’s no way that the Villa Park boss could justify making an unprecedented change like dropping Elmo for Hutton tomorrow. Rotherham are the opponents at the New York City Stadium, and whilst it won’t be easy, the fans will back themselves so long as Elmohamady keeps his place.

You can read the Villains’ thoughts on Hutton’s return here:

The Villains are desperate for Hutton to stay benched, and whilst he’ll be a nice option for rotation in the final run-in, he shouldn’t be thrown in ahead of the in-form Elmo.
