The bad news? The man Villa sold to Liverpool, Christian Benteke, is that one.
|Rudy Gestede||Aston Villa||29||242|
Indeed, Gestede has made a bright start to life at Villa Park, while Benteke has also opened his account for Liverpool - even if it was in controversial circumstances.
However, had the Aston Villa man been given the same amount of minutes as the Belgian so far this season, he has averaged slightly less per header won.
|Team||Minutes Per Header||Minutes Played|
|Rudy Gestede||Aston Villa||8.34||242|
|Marouane Fellaini||Man Utd||6.5||13|
And the figures are very much a continuation of the norm rather than the exception. Indeed, the Liverpool striker won more headers than any Premier League player last season, while his successor at Aston Villa won more headers in the Championship - by far - than any rival.
|Premier League 2014/15||Team||Headers||Minutes Played|
|Christian Benteke||Aston Villa||188||2,380|
|Championship 2014/15||Team||Headers||Minutes Played|
|Alex Revell||Cardiff / Rotherham||224||2,426|
|Sean Morrison||Cardiff / Reading||221||3,779|
Both, then, are serious beasts in the air - and it will be interesting to see who ends up with the most aerial duels won come the end of the season.
At this rate, both the Aston Villa and Liverpool strikers will also have plenty to compete for in terms of who'll end up with the most goals...
