Villa boss Lambert ponders Westwood, Cleverley injury setbacks

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert delivered an injury update after victory over Leicester City.

Lambert confirmed that Ashley Westwood is due for a scan on his injured knee, with the results likely tomorrow.

Tom Cleverley was subbed off in the second half due to a bruised foot.

He said: "Westy will get a scan tomorrow.

"For Westy to go down and stay down, you know there's some sort of thing there. Hopefully it's just a ligament thing and not as bad.

"I just think because it's him, if he goes down you know there is something wrong with him. I haven't seen it on the rerun back. He's a lad, if he goes down, there's a problem.

"Tom has a bruised foot at the minute. But Tom was touch and go before the game. Fair play to him for wanting to play. As the game went on, he was feeling it."
