Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is delighted to have veteran attacker Patrik Berger available for tonight's match against Tottenham.

O'Neill said: "I am pleased Patrik is back. He was obviously disappointed after a very good pre-season to have been out for a while.

"Now he is back and I would like him to think about playing like he did the second half of last season when he was terrific for us.

"He proved what he is worth last season, deserved his new contract, and I am just pleased to have him back in the fold and available for us."
