The Spaniard has been impressed with 20-year-old Gibson's development this season, which has seen him thrown in at the deep end at times with injuries and suspensions taking their toll on his squad.

However, the head coach insists Gibson still has much to learn and wants to keep his feet firmly on the ground.

Karanka told the Northern Echo: "Ben Gibson has impressed me a lot so far since I have been with the club.

"He has shown he is a good defender and that he can grow as a player, but he needs to improve a lot too.

"His character is good. His ability is good too which has impressed me. But he has made mistakes as well, so he will get better with more games and experience."

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.
