Villa 3-2 QPR: Guzan - Our forward line is really fearsome


Brad Guzan has paid tribute to Villa's fab forward line, insisting they "strike fear" into the hearts of top-flight defences.

Villa started with Christian Benteke, Gabby Agbonlahor and Andreas Weimann in advanced positions in the game against QPR - and all three scored in the brilliant 3-2 win.

Guzan believes the threat posed by the trio - along with Charles N'Zogbia who was used from the bench - makes Villa a dangerous side to face in the season finale of eight games.

But Guzan isn't just impressed with their attacking endeavour. He also likes their defensive qualities too.

He said: "We know what those three guys are all about.

"We're always going to create chances with them.

"We were able to bring a guy off the bench like Charles, who is going to create chances.

"It's important to have that threat because it strikes fear into defenders.

"Nobody wants to defend against guys like Christian, Gabby or Andi.

"They were very, very good going-forward. But you have to say, their work-rate defensively was very good. That's important.

"They might only get credit for their goals and what they do offensively but I think it's very important what they do defensively too."

Make sure you snap up tickets for Villa v Liverpool.
