Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton doesn't feel the game is passing him by after two years of injury woes.

Albrighton, speaking to promote Just Play, a scheme set up by Mars and The FA to get more adults into football, doesn’t think so.

He told the Daily Mail: "Someone like Raheem Sterling has had a fantastic start with Liverpool and getting his just deserves. Alex [Oxlade-Chamberlain], too, is progressing great.

"Yes, I’ve been held back and that could have been me. But I’ve got plenty of years left in me and it starts now, putting in a good season and perhaps that notice might come.

"Maybe there is annoyance. But I’m only 22, so hopefully I can progress in the next few years."
