Ace Agbonlahor makes it into BBC Sport team of the week


Gabby Agbonlahor has made it into the BBC Sport team of the week.

Forward Agbonlahor was in blistering form as he put Norwich to the sword at Carrow Road.

And his performance was spotted by pundit Garth Crooks, who selected him in his best XI.

Manager Paul Lambert called his performance first-class and his goals were donned excellent while newspaper reporters were gushing in their praise of the star striker.

Crooks said: "Gabby completely destroyed Norwich with his pace.

"It's now five wins in eight games for Villa and suddenly they see the Premier League survival line.

"All credit to Paul Lambert because he has stuck to his guns and kept faith with a young, inexperienced team but one with bags of potential.

"Gabby has now scored six goals in his last seven top-flight appearances for Villa."

Team: Elliott [Newcastle], Azpilicueta [Chelsea], Reid [West Ham], Coloccini [Newcastle], Cole [Chelsea], Maloney [Wigan], Bale [Tottenham], Mata [Chelsea], Agbonlahor [Villa], Walcott [Arsenal], Kone [Wigan].
