Aston Villa forward Gabriel Agbonlahor is confident that the club will survive relegation despite their poor start to the season.
The 29-year-old with Nigerian roots helped Remi Garde’s men to a 2-0 win against Norwich City which helped them reduce the gap in the relegation battle to eight points.
If Aston Villa are to avoid dropping out of the Premier League for the first time, they are likely to need some points from a tricky upcoming period – they face Liverpool, Stoke City, Everton, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur in their next five matches.
“We are going to keep fighting until the end,” BBC Sport quotes the striker as saying. “That is all the club expects from us. Take it game by game.
“There is no reason why we cannot escape. We showed fight today. We had a game plan: we defended well and attacked well.”
Agbonlahor’s goal was his first Premier League goal of the season after an injury plagued campaign.
