Just days after confirming Gabby Agbonlahor would be unavailable for selection due to concerns over his fitness. The Villa forward has landed himself in more hot water.
Speaking ahead of trip to Old Trafford, Eric Black revealed that Agbonlahor was "not at the level to contribute in the way he should" and the forward had agreed to be put on a two-week fitness programme. But following the clubs’ top flight relegation on Saturday, Agbonlahor was pictured partying in a London hotel with canisters of laughing gas. Following the news, Villa moved quickly and released a statement confirming his immediate suspension: "Aston Villa Football Club has today suspended Gabby Agbonlahor pending an internal investigation. This is following allegations concerning his conduct at the weekend. There will be no further comment from the Club in relation to this matter until the investigation has been completed."

Joleon Lescott and Gabby Agbonlahor helped Aston Villa earn their third win of the season.

This was a huge win for Villa, who needed the points in an already uphill battle to avoid relegation. Norwich were especially bad in this one, and Declan Rudd looked completely lost on the second goal. Norwich are now in the relegation zone, and they will have to fight off Sunderland and Aston Villa. The relegation race has a number of contenders, but this win was huge to give Aston Villa at least a small chance of survival.

A back problem is likely to keep Gabby Agbonlahor out until the New Year.

Remi Garde confirmed: "Gabby is still struggling," ahead of his sides trip to the Stadium of Light. The French boss also revealed that Carlos Sanchez (hamstring) has been ruled out although his injury is not serious which could see a return in the FA Cup. However, there better news as Jores Okore (knee inflammation) re-joined the group on Wednesday and the defender could be in line for a recall. Ashley Westwood and Jordan Ayew are both suspended.

Gabby Agbonlahor is doubtful for WK15.

Jordon Ayew has been playing well for Aston Villa and most likely draw another start with Agbonlahor out. Ayew is in a fairly tough spot this week against Southampton but should be owned in draft leagues.

Gabby Agbonlahor is probable to return in week 10.

Gabby Agbonlahor has missed time with an injury but has now fully recovered and could make his return in week 10. It's unknown if he'll star and how his fitness is, so we would avoid him in fantasy this week, but he could certainly make an appearance. Ciaran Clark is also expected to return.

Tim Sherwood is the bookies favorite to get sacked as Aston Villa are enjoying time in the relegation zone.

Aston Villa have only four points from their first eight matches and find themselves four points back of 17th place. They visit out-of-form Chelsea this weekend but that doesn't seem like a promising matchup considering the makeup of both squads. Sherwood will have to start producing results sooner rather than later if he wants a different fate from Brendan Rodgers.

Aston Villa edged out local rivals Birmingham City in the Capital One cup but the win came at a cost as Gabby Agbonlahor was replaced during the break because of a calf complaint.

Tim Sherwood confirmed post-match that defender Joleon Lescott – who also appeared to be limping – was a planned [tactical] substitution allowing Ciaran Clark to drop back in at centre half. Agbonlahor picked up a muscular problem and the Villa forward is an early doubt for the trip to Anfield this weekend. However there was better news as Gary Gardner – ankle ligaments - is set to resume full training within the next fortnight while defender Jose Crespo completed another 90 minutes for the development side following his pre-season groin strain.

Gabby Agbonlahor is questionable for week one after picking up a minor knock during last night's match against Wolverhampton.

Agbonlahor is currently being assessed after picking up the knock last night. He is only a fantasy option during the very last rounds of fantasy drafts so the injury shouldn't be a huge bummer to fantasy owners. Expect to know more about his injury in the next few days but flat out ignore him in fantasy drafts for now.

Aston Villa have already found the replacement for Christian Benteke in Ghanaian striker Jordan Ayew.

Ayew's brother is already at Swansea and it seems like both of them will play in the Premier League next season. Jordan is a 23-year old striker that comes for a fee in the region of $14-$19 million. He had 13 goals in League 1 last season while playing for Lorient, which was his highest goal tally in six seasons in the top flight. Ayew will likely be a nailed on striker at Aston Villa but it'll be hard to use him in fantasy as he's not a proven goal-scorer at this stage.

Gabby Agbonlahor will return to Aston Villa's squad this weekend after missing a month with a hamstring injury.

Agbonlahor has been training for over a week now and should be fit for a big role this weekend. It's unknown whether he'll start, especially with Aston Villa playing well without him, but an appearance off the bench is very likely. We wouldn't trust him in fantasy due to the uncertainty, so if you want an Aston Villa forward in your fantasy squad, it's recommended you go with Christian Benteke.

Gabby Agbonlahor will miss the visit of Everton in GW35 after Tim Sherwood confirmed the forward has just returned to light training following injury.

Agbonlahor has not featured since pulling up with a hamstring problem during the victory at White Hart Lane two weeks ago despite the initial optimism regarding the severity of the injury. The forward missed the semi-final win over Liverpool and the narrow loss at the Etihad but it is envisaged that Agbonlahor should be ready to join the main group early next week. The treatment room is beginning to clear at a crucial moment for Villa as Aly Cissokho and Philippe Senderos made the bench last weekend while Alan Hutton has a good chance of playing this weekend. Scott Sinclair will also be added to the squad after he sat out of the game against his parent club.

Gabby Agbonlahor was fantastic over the past weekend as he scored twice in Aston Villa's huge win over Sunderland.

Agbonlahor is not known as a goal-scorer but netted twice over the weekend. This was also his third goal in two matches, as the forward has been extremely active under new manager Tim Sherwood. Gabby doesn't get enough phantom points to be considered every week, so we recommend you leave him on the bench for the near future. The goal scoring will end soon.

Gabby Agbonlahor will return from a one-match ban in order to face Crystal Palace this weekend.

Agbonlahor faces Crystal Palace, who weren't as bad without a manager as we thought, but the appeal for home goals is there. We don't recommend Agbonlahor in anything but the deepest formats, but he is an option as he is someone who likes to get forward and can create chances.

Gabby Agbonlahor is suspended for GW19 due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

The Aston Villa forward had his red card rescinded from week 17 but then picked up a yellow in week 18 and will now serve a one-match ban. Andreas Weimann will likely return to the starting lineup and Christian Benteke is expected to lead the line. Benteke is the one worth owning in fantasy if you want a Villa forward in their great week 19 matchup.

Gabby Agbonlahor has won his red card appeal and will not have to serve a three-match ban.

The forward was sent off during Aston Villa's last match but he has won his appeal and that has been overturned. Gabby has never been sent off in his Premier League career and that remains true. He has not been a great fantasy option this season and despite playing tomorrow, it's hard to consider him in anything other than the deepest of formats.
