Tuesday media watch [14.05.13 AM]: Vlaar on survival showdown


Birmingham Mail: Captain Ron Vlaar has cranked up the pressure on Villa's survival rivals Wigan by warning them they are entering the last-chance saloon at Arsenal this evening. If the FA Cup winners fail to beat the Champions League-chasing Gunners at The Emirates Stadium they will be relegated from the Premier League and Villa stay up.

Birmingham Mail: Tonight's the night Villa's fate could be decided without them even kicking a ball - as the claret and blues' survival attentions switch from Villa Park to The Emirates Stadium. If Wigan fail to win at Arsenal this evening Paul Lambert's team WILL DEFINITELY BE SAFE, everything will be really fine and we will wonder what all the fuss was about.

The Sun: Paul Lambert insists striker Christian Benteke has not played his last game for Aston Villa. The £25million-rated Belgian, 22, is suspended for the final league game of the season at Wigan.

Daily Telegraph: Steve Bruce is set to make James Chester a third contract offer in an attempt to kill off interest from Aston Villa and prevent the defender leaving Hull City.

ClubCall: Ron Vlaar claims Aston Villa will be looking to end the season on a winning note at Wigan even if the game does not mean anything. The Villa skipper has played a key role to take Villa to within touching distance of Premier League safety and that could be confirmed on Tuesday as FA Cup winners Wigan travel to Arsenal knowing anything less than a win will consign them to Championship football next season.

ClubCall: Paul Lambert has reiterated that Christian Benteke is 'really happy' at Aston Villa as Borussia Dortmund have now been linked to him. The Villa chief has spoken out after further interest in Benteke, who has been a huge success at Villa Park since signing from Genk in a £7million deal last summer, scoring over 20 goals in all competitions.
