Gabriel Agbonlahor: Says Villa just need luck

Villa are in the bottom three after eight games without a win, despite an improved performance in Saturday's 3-3 draw at Everton.

But Agbonlahor, who is Villa's longest-serving player, is refusing to panic.

He said: "I'm not more worried (than previously). Previous seasons have been tough and this season is the same.

"The teams that have come up have been better than in recent years. But I feel we've been unlucky and just need a bit more luck. Once that changes we will start to win more games than we lose.

"Are you thinking about relegation? No, it's not in anyone's mind. We know there will be shock results between now and the end of the season. We just have to get the results we need."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
