O'Neill: Villa need Carew to find scoring touch

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill says they won't be firing on all cylinders until John Carew discovers his scoring touch.

O'Neill said: "John has shown some good goalscoring form with Norway on international duty and I am hoping that he can quickly show the same finishing for Villa.

"Our real form has not been shown in the goals we've scored. That will come I am sure when the likes of John Carew click in front of goal.

"We have attempted to go forward and the crowd are on the edge of their seats whenever Ashley Young picks up the ball.

"It is all exciting stuff and the last two home games against Fulham and Chelsea have been exceptional, and that is why I am looking forward to playing Everton.

"Under David Moyes they did well last season. Moyes himself has been successful.

"From a distance he appears to have had the support of the chairman. As a result, Everton are now in Europe and deserve to be.

"When he came in he was given time to do the job and was able to get things up and running.

"Then he had a season when things were tough but, as I have said, he had the backing of his chairman and that is all any manager can ask for."
