Aston Villa midfielder Henri Lansbury hasn’t had the best of times since arriving at the club back in the January 2017 transfer window for a reported £2.75million fee from Nottingham Forest.

The 28-year-old has had form issues and lengthy problems with a number of injuries and we are undoubtedly yet to see the best of him given he only has 25 starting appearances to his name, with nine showings from the substitutes bench – with the goalscoring midfielder only finding the back of the net twice.

In last weekend’s clash with Bristol City, his late substitute appearance was only his fourth of the entire 2018/19 campaign so far, and fans are now hopeful that we can see the best of him if he can remain fit.

With some concerns about John McGinn’s yellow card tally and his potential to miss the Play-Offs if he picks up another two bookings, Lansbury’s importance to head coach Dean Smith could become even more prevalent as plenty of fans want McGinn ‘rested’ when he picks up booking 14 and for Lansbury to come in as his replacement for our remaining fixtures.
