Villa rookie Albrighton delighted with Premiership chance

Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton was delighted with his chance in victory over Aston Villa.

He set up the first goal for Stewart Downing and brilliantly created the third for James Milner, who left the field to a standing ovation with five minutes to go and with his name reverberating around the stadium.

"I really enjoyed every minute of it," said Albrighton, who grew up supporting Villa and lives only a few miles from the training ground.

"Kevin said go out there and enjoy it, and play the way I have the last few years. I have done it for one game of the season and have to keep my feet on the ground. As soon as I came off the pitch, James Milner said: 'You have set a standard there, you have to keep that going for 37 games.' He is bang on."
