Clubcall: Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has urged his side to respond to the defeat against Newcastle when they travel to Norwich on Saturday. Villa were beaten 2-1 by Newcastle at Villa Park last time out and Lambert has called on his side to bounce back when they take on his former club Norwich at Carrow Road this weekend.

Sky Sports: Christian Benteke is confident of forging a successful partnership with Libor Kozak at Aston Villa following the arrival of the Czech Republic striker on deadline day. Benteke has shouldered a lot of responsibility since joining Villa in the summer of 2012 - and Paul Lambert hopes Kozak will be able to share the scoring burden. The new man was unable to make much of an impact in his debut on Saturday as Villa went down 2-1 at home to Newcastle United but Benteke had been impressed by what he has seen in training and is hopeful for the future.

Clubcall: Christian Benteke believes he will form an effective partnership with summer signing Libor Kozak at Aston Villa this season. Czech international Kozak joined Villa from Lazio in the summer and Benteke believes he will be a success at Villa Park. Benteke expects to form a fierce partnership with Kozak over the course of the campaign, despite the fact their training time together has been limited due to international commitments of late.
