Villa boss O'Neill: Milner will see plenty of action

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill insists James Milner will see plenty of action this season. O'Neill said: "We went into the West Brom game with the same side as against Tottenham the previous Monday and the same side as against Liverpool - but James will play. Don't worry about that. "We've got another 1,000 games to play. James didn't sign for a month and a half! He will play and so will Carlos Cuellar and so will some of the other people we have signed. "James couldn't play against QPR because he was cup-tied. I get asked 'where I am I going to fit James in.'
