Arsenal v Villa: Agbonlahor - Lads are refreshed and raring to go


Villa head into the clash with Arsenal "refreshed and raring to go."

That's the verdict of Gabby Agbonlahor on the eve of a trip to The Emirates.

Agbonlahor says the camp is buzzing on the back of the home win over West Ham.

And he hopes the team can use this feel-good factor to collect the points on Saturday.

He said: "We have had a chance to recharge the batteries.

"Everyone is fresh so hopefully that can help on Saturday.

"With the two week break, everyone is raring to go.

"We know it's going to be tough but the results we've picked up over the past few weeks, we can go there with confidence.

"The West Ham win was massive and the impact on the mood has been huge.

"It was a long time since our last home win so it was a big buzz for the team.

"Everyone in training is on a real high. The confidence is high. Training is great.

"We go into the game with real confidence. We want to keep the confidence going.

"But we know it's not going to be easy. Arsenal have a very good squad. It's going to be tough.

"We will go there and try to play our own game. Hopefully we can get something out of the game.

"We will concentrate on us and go there with our strategy and our tactics. We're not concentrating on what they're doing."

Agbonlahor says the team are focused on winning games between now and the end of the season - however they come.

On the back of the frantic finish against West Ham, he also warned that there will be plenty more exciting ends to games.

He added: "It's all about winning. It doesn't matter how you get it - winning ugly, winning pretty - it's all about picking up those three points. It's all about getting the points on the table."

On the finale against the Hammers, he added: "You'll get that. It's a relegation battle so everyone will be on edge. If you're up in a big game, you're going to get those nerves."
