Watford dominated play at the City Ground, and while speculation surrounds the 20-year-old's future, Zola is confident the striker will remain at Vicarage Road.

"I am not surprised that other clubs are supposed to be interested in him because he is a fine player with a great attitude," Zola said.

"But he wants to keep on learning and I think he feels he is with the best club to do that at this stage of his career. We know that we can work with him and help him improve.

"There are still margins for him to work on but he is keen to do that because he is a very good boy and works very hard. He has a great mentality.

"We are fortunate that we have a very good partnership up front in Matej and Troy Deeney. They combine so well together and have not only produced a supply of goals but work very hard for the team.

"You could see how their link-up play worked today but as well they will point to their success as a reflection of the work that the team is doing as a unit."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
