Gabriel Agbonlahor scored for Aston Villa as they picked up an unexpected point against Southampton in the Monday night Premier League clash.

This was a vastly improved performance from Aston Villa, who were well organised from the start and took a first half lead when Agbonlahor took advantage of an error of judgement from Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster. Paul Lambert's men resisted an onslaught from the Saints in the second half, that was until the 81st minute when Nathaniel Clyne scored a fine goal to deny the home side a vital three points. Still, a point moves Villa a little further from the relegation zone, up to 16th.

Aston Villa have stunned Liverpool in the middle of Anfield by winning 1-0.

Villa have started the season in spectacular fashion, coming out with ten points out of their first four matches for the first time since 1998. Villa took the lead through a scrappy Gabby Agbonlahor goal and dominated the rest of the match, looking like the better team. They will finish the gameweek in second place after Chelsea, just two points behind. The talk about Aston Villa fighting the relegation battle has to stop now.

Gabby Agbonlahor has signed a new deal with Aston Villa that will keep him at the club until 2018.

The forward is an important part of Aston Villa's squad, despite being a poor fantasy choice. Agbonlahor is a good midfielder who can create chances and attract defensive attention from the opposition. The problem for him is that he doesn't score nor shoot enough to gain good fantasy value and was actually averaging negative points through the first two weeks. He scored a goal in week 3, but trying to guess when Gabby scores is a terrible way to play fantasy soccer. He has 68 goals in 276 matches in an Aston Villa shirt.

Aston Villa forward Gabby Agbonlahor has been terrible for fantasy managers in the first two weeks of the season.

Agbonlahor had negative four points in week two after finishing with just one point in the first match. The forward has struggled to rack up any kind of fantasy stats and committed four fouls in week two to make matters worse. Gabby has never been a premium option, and with no good strikers at Villa to get at the end of his chances, his fantasy potential remains fairly low. When Christian Benteke returns, Agbonlahor's value will rise, but he will only be an option in the deepest of leagues.

Aston Villa fans have voted Gabby Agbonlahor as the most under-performing player this season.

24% of fans believe Agbonlahor was the most under-performing player while 19% think Andreas Weimann deserves the award. It was a tough season for both forwards, partially because they had to play alongside sub-par players. Both players are best when supplying a goal-scoring strikers such as Christian Benteke but Benteke and Libor Kozak both suffered season ending injuries. Villa's success next season will be dependent on the play of Agbonlahor and he will need to improve if he wants to remain at the club long-term as Paul Lambert has shown little patience when it comes to under-performing players.

Gabby Agbonlahor is expected to face Tottenham on Championship Sunday after missing the Manchester City game through a knee injury.

Agbonlahor is relied upon for goals and creativity as Villa continue to miss their main strikers, Christian Benteke and Libor Kozak, through long term injuries. The only problem I see is that Villa may choose to keep him on the bench due to the fact that they have guaranteed themselves Premier League status for next season and may not want to risk him with the knee injury. If you play Agbonlahor, make sure to have a deep bench available.

Gabby Agbonlahor missed Aston Villa's clash against Manchester City due to a knee injury.

Agbonlahor picked up a knock during Villa's match against Hull City over the weekend and couldn't recover on time to face Manchester City today. He was missed as Villa lacked pace in attack and failed to score against a quality Manchester squad. Agbonlahor has dealt with a number of injuries this season and with relegation not an option anymore, Aston Villa could choose to play it safe and rest Gabby for the final match of the season on Sunday. Youngster Jordan Bowery started in his place and could get another start if Agbonlahor misses out again.

Gabby Agbonlahor is considered doubtful for Aston Villa's match against Fulham this Saturday due to an illness.

Villa need all the attacking power they can get with Christian Benteke and Libor Kozak both out for the season. It's unknown how Villa will lineup without their two best strikers missing so it's hard to predict how Agbonlahor's role and fantasy production will be affected. On one hand, he will be relied on more for scoring. On the other hand, Villa will likely struggle in attack and there will be less points to be had. I would avoid the Villa attack for now.

Gabby Agbonlahor "looks pretty good at the minute" according to Paul Lambert and the Villa forward is expected back against West Ham.

Agbonlahor has been out for a few games with a foot injury but is back in training and appears to be very close to a return. I'm not sure if he can go for the full 90 minutes but I think he has a good chance of at least coming off the bench, especially if the game is close.
Feb 6 - 8:28 PM

Gabby Agbonlahor has an outside chance of being fit for Aston Villa's game against West Ham this coming weekend.

Agbonlahor has been dealing with a foot problem since he injured himself against Liverpool a few weeks ago and has missed Villa's last two Premier League games. Paul Lambert said that Agbonlahor is now able to put his weight on it and will attempt to be fit for the West Ham game. A more likely return date is February 11th against Cardiff City.

Gabby Agbonlahor hasn't trained since hurting his foot in a fall over the advertising hoardings at Anfield but will be assessed before Aston Villa play Everton on Saturday.

Agbonlahor sounds doubtful to play against Everton but Paul Lambert will assess him before the game to see if he can go. Agbonlahor has been a big part of VIlla's good form in January and will be missed if he can't play. In the game against West Brom in midweek, Villa lined up with Andreas Weimann and Christian Benteke up top and Delph, Westwood, El Ahmadi, and Bacuna in midfield. Expect a similar lineup against Everton.

Gabby Agbonlahor scored the only goal in the game to give Aston Villa a critical three points and get them back to winning ways.

Aston Villa had earned only four points in December but started on the right path in 2014. Gabby Agbonlahor stole the ball right in front of goal and beat Sunderland's keeper for an easy tap in goal. Christian Benteke and Ron Vlaar returned to Villa's lineup and were instrumental in the win. Vlaar is a huge addition to the defense and having him healthy should help Villa stay away from the relegation zone.

Gabby Agbonlahor scored the only goal for Aston Villa in a 1-1 draw against Swansea.

Agbonlahor showed his importance to the Aston Villa squad when he put them ahead 1-0 in the 7th minute. He has served more as a creator than a scorer in the past but Agbonlahor can put the ball away when given the chance. Aston Villa welcome to point after losing four straight matches and this is something they can build on when they visit Sunderland on New Years Day.

Gabby Agbonlahor will return from his one match ban for accumulated yellow cards.

Agbonlahor increases Libor Kozak's value in a tasty home matchup against Crystal Palace. He creates many chances for Villa and is an important part of their attack. While he does create chances, he does very little else that shows up on the fantasy sheet so he is not an advisable option.
