Aston Villa defender Guilbert eager for Premier League restart

Aston Villa defender Frederic Guilbert is eager for the Premier League to resume.

Dean Smith's team would resume 19th in the table – albeit with a game in hand – if the 2019-20 campaign is able to begin again, while they would likely be relegated by the points-per-game formula that may be used if the season is curtailed.

"We need to stay positive. We play football. It's the best work in the world. Life is most-important for me," said Guilbert.

"We need to keep our fingers crossed for the restart. We speak a lot on WhatsApp group. The players are positive.

"It's been a good season because I've played a lot, but some of the results have not been the best and I think we can do better."
