Monday media watch [07.10.13 PM]: Hull verdict/Benteke latest
Express and Star: Brad Guzan today claimed Villa's dour draw at Hull has maintained their momentum heading into the international break. Saturday's 0-0 draw at the KC Stadium had little in the way of entertainment but stretched Villa's unbeaten Premier League run to three games - their best spell since December last year.
Express and Star: A goal-less draw looked on the cards long before referee Mark Clattenburg blew his whistle for the final time. Aside from a couple of Gabriel Agbonlahor efforts, one saved by Hull keeper Allan McGregor and the other placed just wide of the post, neither side looked like scoring in the 90 minutes. There were undoubtedly positives for both sides, most notably for Villa a second clean sheet in three games.
Sky Sports: Brad Guzan feels Aston Villa continue to head in the right direction after collecting another point away at Hull City. Villa were unable to secure a third straight success at the KC Stadium on Saturday, but ensured that they enter the international break with confidence in plentiful supply.
Setanta Sports: Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert trusts Christian Benteke to make the right decision regarding his fitness when he joins up with the Belgium national squad. Benteke has been included in the Belgium squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Croatia and Wales despite missing Villa's last two Premier League fixtures through injury.
ClubCall: Brad Guzan has admitted that Aston Villa miss the presence of Christian Benteke after they were held to a 0-0 draw at Hull on Saturday. The United States international goalkeeper spoke out following the stalemate at the KC Stadium as Villa were heartened by a second clean sheet in successive Premier League away games.
