Agbonlahor believes Villa will approach the games, starting with Saturday evening's home encounter with Manchester United, full of confidence after his winner at Sunderland over the weekend.

The striker said: "It was the ideal way to start the month because, if we didn't get the result on Saturday, then it would have put us under more pressure.

"We didn't want to leave there without a win because of the schedule we've got coming up.

"We've got some really tough games. It's hard, but there are upsets in football and we'll be hoping to cause one.

"We know it's going to be tough but we've got the team spirit and the hard work and hopefully we can get something out of these games."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
