Andreas Weimann: Celebrates his goal against QPR

Villa boosted their survival hopes with a 3-2 victory against their fellow strugglers, with Weimann scoring in between goals from Gabriel Agbonlahor and Christian Benteke.

And the 21-year-old insists the Villa Park faithful played a vital role in driving the team on during a crucial fixture in their attempts at avoiding the drop.

"The fans were brilliant," Weimann said. "They have been fantastic all season. But in the game against QPR they were even better.

"There were nearly 40,000 here in the ground and they were all willing us on to win.

"The reaction I got was great. I want to do my best for Villa. Receiving a standing ovation when I came off was brilliant.

"The last few minutes were tense. I couldn't sit down on the bench. Everyone was on their feet. When the final whistle blew it was magnificent."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
