Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert says Brad Guzan deserves to be classed in the same bracket as Christian Benteke this season.

The Belgium striker has rightfully taken huge plaudits for a memorable season which has seen him hit 19 goals.

But goalkeeper Guzan - who forced his way into the team ahead of Shay Given - has had an equally good year, according to Lambert.

"If we didn't have Brad we could have lost more games," he said.

"Strikers are gold dust but so is a goalkeeper. I class people as equal. The team have done it this season, everyone's been great."

What will the outcome be?

  • Wigan win
  • Draw
  • Aston Villa win
