Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton insists Darren Bent isn't brooding over his benching.

Bent was again left out for Villa's defeat at Tottenham yesterday.

"Bent is a professional," Albrighton told talkSPORT. "People in top teams get dropped all the time. It's just good now for Aston Villa football club that we've got four class strikers.

"We've got Andreas Weimann on the bench as well today. It just shows we've got good options all over the place."
