Carew breaks down for Aston Villa

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill admits John Carew is set for a lengthy spell out after suffering a knee injury in their 2-0 defeat of Everton.

O'Neill admitted: "It doesn't look great and it's a shame for John.

"The goal had given him a big boost in terms of confidence. Centre-forwards say they are happy doing work outside the area but scoring goals is the most important thing for them.

"John was very strong and when he got that goal he was even stronger. We just hope he isn't out for too long."
