Agbonlahor: Emery has Villa fans dreaming

Former Aston Villa captain Gabby Agbonlahor is convinced by the quality of Unai Emery's team.

Villa defeated champions Manchester City in midweek and sit third on the Premier League table.

Agbonlahor told the Daily Mail: "Our club has been waiting for this time. Not just being the best in the Midlands, but taking on and beating the best in the country and beyond.

"The win against Manchester City this week was the best performance I have ever seen from a Villa team. City are the best team in the world, the treble winners, but only had two shots on goal and the last one in the game was on eleven minutes. Then Villa took over.

"This manager has got us all dreaming. There is a style and a purpose to the manager's play, but also a trust from the supporters. With each game, there is something different in his tactics, but there is a total buy-in from the players. Like a Pep Guardiola team, they look well-drilled.

"The home form is as good as it can be and there is no reason to fear Arsenal. His team plays with no fear. It is such a joy to watch."
