Tuesday media watch [07.05.13 AM]: Boss on sharing plaudits

Birmingham Mail: Paul Lambert would prefer his whole squad to share tonight's player-of-the-year awards rather than singling out individuals - after hailing Villa's collective spirit. The unity among the claret and blues was evident against at the final whistle at Norwich when Lambert, the team and the fans warmly celebrated the crucial victory together.

Birmingham Mail: Paul Lambert can understand Christian Benteke taking out his frustrations on defenders who resort to rough treatment to try to stop him. Benteke escaped with a yellow card rather than a red for shoving marker Sebastien Bassong in the throat during Villa's vital 2-1 victory at Norwich on Saturday.

The Sun: Brad Guzan is top of Sam Allardyce's summer shopping list. West Ham boss Big Sam has still not signed a new contract, but is planning for next season - and Aston Villa keeper Guzan is a priority.

Best Of The Rest

The Sun: Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has stuck the knife into Chelsea ahead of tomorrow's crunch battle for a top-four spot.
