Aston Villa have shared an update surrounding the fitness situation of full-back Matty Cash.

With the Midlands club set to take on Leeds United away from home on Sunday for their latest Premier League clash, Villa’s official Twitter account shared a post that included an update on Cash.

The post revealed that after being out of action with a hamstring injury he picked up during Villa’s 1-1 draw against Manchester City, the defender should be set to return to full training on Monday.

While it will be unfortunate for the club and Steven Gerrard to not have the right-back available for the Leeds game, having him back in training should definitely be seen as a big positive for everyone at Villa.

Having started all of the six league games he’s appeared in, this shows how important Cash is to his side and his manager.

In those six appearances, the Polish international has shown how useful he can be from a defensive and attacking point of view.

In terms of his defensive work, Cash has racked up the joint-fifth highest number of successful tackles (6) at Villa as well as the joint-fourth highest number of interceptions (7) and clearances (13).

Then from an attacking sense, the 25-year-old has carried the ball towards the opponent’s goal (757 yards) further than any of his teammates.

This highlights exactly what the right-back offers Gerrard’s side and why the Villa manager should be delighted at potentially having him back in training after this weekend.

Moving forward, with Villa managing to secure a win in their previous outing against Southampton without Cash in the team, Gerrard will undeniably be hoping that his side can do it again this time around against Leeds.
