Rondon hasn't played for ages and will take time to get up to speed. It's the annoying thing about not signing him 4 weeks earlier to give him a pre season.
Villa are no mugs either
10 points after 5 games. Bounce back next week against Norwich. We didn't play terribly (first half was better than against Burnley), and the season will have ups and downs, we all know we aren't winning every game.
Challenge for Benitez now is getting the right balance with the injuries.
Oh and before anyone starts, Rodriguez wouldn't have made a difference today.
