Young: Villa in great shape for Arsenal test

Ashley Young says Aston Villa's 4-0 win at Blackburn Rovers this week has set them up nicely for their clash with Arsenal.

He told Villa's website: "We've got a 3-0 win and a 4-0 win so things are looking good going into Saturday's game. Everybody is looking forward to that game.

"It promises to be a cracker in front of another sell-out crowd. We just have to keep doing what we have been doing in recent weeks and hopefully we can celebrate another three points.

"They are at the top of the table and are quite obviously one of the best, if not the best, team in the league.

"It is another level up but as we showed against Chelsea we can win against these sides if we play our game. We are looking forward to it. It promises to be another great night."

Reflecting on last night's win, Young added: "It was a wonderful night. Blackburn is a tough place to go to. We set our stall out early doors and that gave us the platform to go forwards and get what turned out to be a comfortable 4-0 win. That's just what we wanted.

"It's always nice to get a goal. Everyone was telling me it was about time I got on the scoresheet. There was the usual banter in the dressing room.

"Now I've got two goals in the last few weeks and I want goals to be part of my game. That's three for the season and I've got to keep it going."
