Having scored his first goal of the season against Burnley at Turf Moor in game week 13 Joe Cole was afforded his second start in quick succession as Villa travelled to face Crystal Palace.
The former West Ham, Liverpool and Lille midfielder is in the twilight years of his career and having battled injury since moving from Chelsea back in 2010 Cole is hoping to make one more splash on the big stage. Since arriving at Villa Park Paul Lambert has been impressed with the ex-England international and believes Cole still has something to offer after a series of of ongoing and niggling muscular issues. Following his first start last weekend Joe Cole was ready to kick start a new chapter for the Villains but this latest setback - hamstring - will delay his return to regular first team action for now at least. His replacement on Tuesday - Carlos Sanchez - at Selhurst Park shone helping to ensure a clean sheet and secure three points thanks to a Christian Benteke goal – his first since March.
