Gabby Agbonlahor Sidelined With Hamstring
Looks like Gabby Agbonlahor, who according to Martin O'Neill got off his sick bed (he had a virus all week ) to play could be out for a while after picking up a hamstring injury in the 3-3 thriller against Everton.
Gabby told the press:
'There is something wrong with my hamstring. I don't know what it is. We'll have to wait and see the results of a scan. I got the ball and pulled up and came off as a precaution. I don't know how long I'll be out for. It felt pretty sore during the game, but I came off when I did because I didn't want to make it worse.'
Meanwhile MON explained that Gabby had been sick but that is the thing with the players at Villa, they just want to play.
Adding 'When Gabby came off, his hamstring was sore. Everything was wrong with him in terms of not being physically fit for the game but he still did great. That is the kind of character he is.'
Is it right to play someone who wasn't well though? Seems a decent way to risk the player further surely?
