It’s still not certain whether Gabriel Agbonlahor would feature for Aston Villa in their next league game against Everton.
The 27 years old winger had injured his foot last month while making appearance against the Reds and had to miss the game against West Bromwich Albion due to that injury.
However, Paul Lambert, the person in charge at Villa, is optimistic about the return of the player.
Aston Villa has had a very tough time in the league in the last couple of months, but, against West Brom, there were signs of improvement in their game as they found the net 4 times to register their 7th win in the competition.
That win took them to one position up to no. 10 in the points table. Now, they would certainly be willing to keep up the momentum that they have got and secure some more points in the next matches.
Barring Agbonlahor, Villa doesn’t have any more injury concerns at the moment. They will have almost their full strength squad available for the game against Everton and if they play as well as they are capable to, they can give the Toffees a run for their money even at their home venue.
If the squads of Villa and Everton are compared on paper, there is no doubt that the latter looks slightly stronger, but, Villa has got some players who can change the fate of the games with their individual performances. If a couple of them get going at Goodison Park this weekend, the spectators will have a great game in their hands.
Everton is at a good position in the league table presently. They have won 11 out of their 23 matches and have got 42 points in the bag right now.
