Villa v Fulham: Bacuna looks to continue home scoring knack


Leandro Bacuna wants to inspire a Villa victory over Fulham this weekend - by continuing his Villa Park goalscoring knack.

Bacuna has netted five times since his summer move from Groningen, with four of those strikes coming in home wins.

The 22-year-old was on target in the B6 triumphs over Manchester City, Cardiff, West Bromwich Albion and Norwich.

It is a statistic the flying Dutchman is proud of - and he would love nothing more than to playing a starring role in another home success against the Cottagers on Saturday.

"It is always good if your goals mean something," said Bacuna.

"But you just want them to be important for the team. Of course, if I score and we win it is going to be brilliant.

"I like to score goals and I hope that I will keep scoring goals for Villa and just carry on supporting the team.

"I have to just keep doing my best for the team and hope that the next goal I score, we go on to win the game."

Bacuna's five top-flight goals this term have included spectacular long-range free-kicks against Man City and Cardiff.

And he admits the City strike - his first as a Villa player - was the most special.

"The first one would be my favourite because it was my first one in the Premier League," added the utility man.

"It was a great day because we were 1-0 down, got to 1-1, then to 2-1 down but we came away with the victory so it was really nice."
