Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan is backing the club’s attacking talent to keep them in the Premier League.

Summer signing Christian Benteke has been a revelation for the relegation-threatened side, scoring 11 times – nearly half of the Villans’ 25 goals in the division.

Villa secured their first victory since mid-December against West Ham last time out, with Benteke and Charles N’Zogbia scoring, and Guzan believes the club have enough firepower up top to stay in the league.

“There are quite a few lads who can really smash a ball,” he told the club’s official website.

“I’m just thankful that they do it on a weekend when it matters. The strikers for us have been fantastic. You can add Charles into that mix too.

“I think a lot of people forget that Christian is only 22. A lot of responsibility has been put on to his shoulders.

“Saying that guys like Andi (Andreas Weimann), Gabby (Gabriel Agbonlahor), Charles and Benty (Darren Bent) have stepped up and helped support him.

“He is such a big part of our team and he is not the only one. We know as a team we all have to help him and he has to help us and it is a collective unit.”

Lying precariously one point above the relegation zone in 17th place, Villa face Arsenal and Manchester City next, before must-win clashes against fellow in-danger sides Reading and QPR.
