Gabby Agbonlahor is ready to fight for a start at Aston Villa this season.

Agbonlahor concedes he will face a battle for his place, with Darren Bent, Andreas Weimann and newcomers Christian Benteke and Jordan Bowery pushing for places up front.

He said: "No-one is guaranteed a starting place and they're going to be coming after my place.

"That was the same when I was younger. I was going for other players' places."
