Lampard sure of Terry influence on Villa form

Four of those shut-outs have come in the past four games and such form has lifted last season’s relegation candidates into the top 10, and Frank Lampard would not be at all surprised if his long-time team-mate John Terry, now an assistant to Dean Smith at Villa Park, has plenty to do with it.

‘I am sure John has an influence because he is in my opinion one of the greatest centre-backs to have played in the Premier League and for England, and in the world for a long period of time,’ Lampard stresses.

‘He has an absolute wealth of knowledge of the game so his input will be invaluable to Dean Smith and all the staff. Their team are working hard and you have seen a real big uplift in them, and I am sure there is a lot work behind the scenes through John and all the staff there.’
