Villa ace Agbonlahor delighted with Benteke return

Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor has welcomed the return to full fitness of Christian Benteke.

Villa's powerhouse striker opened his account for the season with the winner against Crystal Palace.

And then the big Belgian terrorised Leicester as Villa made it two wins in a week and surged back up the table.

"He's a big, big player for us," said Agbonlahor. "He offers a lot more than just scoring goals - look at his assist to Alan Hutton on Sunday.

"That shows that if he doesn't score he adds something. He has his sharpness back too. We are very, very happy to have him back."
