Eric Lichaj is beginning to really make a case for more playing time in the near future.
Lichaj made his third straight start for Aston Villa in their Capital One Cup quarterfinals match against Norwich City on Tuesday, and he delivered the assist on the game-winner in the Villan’s 4-1 victory. Lichaj hit a low cross from the left flank in the second half that a teammate easily directed into the back of the net, giving Lichaj his second assist in the tournament (third across all competitions this season) and assuring the Villans advanced to the semifinals.
Lichaj’s Aston Villa teammate, goalkeeper Brad Guzan, dressed but did not play.
Here is Lichaj’s assist (at the 1:20 mark):
What do you think of Lichaj’s assist? Do you see him starting on a more permanent basis soon? Think Aston Villa has what it takes to win the Carling Cup?
