AS­TON VILLA boss Paul Lam­bert has backed Car­los Sanchez to fill Fabian Delph’s boots.

The Colom­bian mid­fielder has started just one league game but looks set for his chance with Delph side­lined with a shoul­der prob­lem.

“Car­los will come into the reck­on­ing,” said Lam­bert. “He has done re­ally well in train­ing, but the form of Fabian has been re­ally high.

“Now is the time to look at Car­los and say, ‘Let’s see if you’re ready’.

“He’s played in mas­sive games be­fore. I don’t have any prob­lem with putting him in.”
