Problems continue to mount for Aston Villa as both Jordan Amavi and Rudy Gestede picked up injuries while on international duty.
Amavi suffered a "serious knee injury" while on France under-21 duty and Gestede was replaced moments before the break during Benin's win over Burkina Faso due to an unspecified problem. Pierre Mankowski [u21s coach] revealed post-match on Thursday "that it was too soon to make an accurate and conclusive diagnosis on the [Amavi] injury," but initial reports suggest ligament damage and an extended period on the side-lines. Villa are hopeful that the news on their leading goal scorer is a lot more positive despite an indifferent start to his Claret and Blues career. Gestede has managed 3-goals from six starts since arriving from Blackburn and with Agbonlahor managing an ongoing calf problem, the 27-year-old could be the man to fire Remi Garde’s men out of the relegation zone.
