Three Aston Villa Players Who Need To Step Up To Ensure A Strong Finish To The Season

With 4 wins in their last five games, Aston Villa might have resurrected their position but it appears to have come a little too late. Steve Bruce has finally got his tactics clicking but after 37 games, his outfit have managed to get merely 48 points and are 14 points behind sixth-place Sheffield Wednesday, which is the last playoff berth.

Nonetheless, a strong finish in the Championship should turn the momentum in their favour but to ensure that Aston Villa would need their players to deliver and here are three players who need to bring about an upward trajectory in their form in the business end of this season.

Gabriel Agbonlahor

A player who singlehandedly catered to the goal-scoring needs of Aston Villa once upon a time has fallen miserably to supply a cutting edge to his side in the Championship. So far this campaign, the 30-year-old has made merely 11 appearances, during which he has scored no goals, bagged 1 assist and created 7 chances, which is severely inferior to what Bruce actually expects from him.

Moreover, Agbonlahor’s contract expires in the summer and thus, he needs to make a series of spectacular outings to reclaim his former self once again.

Libor Kozak

Ever since his move to the Villa Park in 2013, Kozak has been in and out the side and is arguably the emblematic testament of the downhill trajectory which the club is going through for quite some time now. Despite the handsome wage which he pockets, the Czech Republic international has featured merely 2 times so far this season and has contributed nothing substantial.


He has flopped massively and without any shadow of a doubt, he is someone who should be given a few more chances to be tried and tested to check if he still has the touch of professionalism left in him to ply his trade in the Championship next season.

Jordan Amavi

Left-back Amavi has been a letdown for the Villans and the primary reason for the same could be traced to the fact that he hasn’t really made full use of the potential he possesses. He might be one of the most talented youngsters on the English soil at this point of time but his form has been stagnating as he has failed to impose himself as a trustworthy asset for the side from defensive as well as offensive point of view.

This term, he has bagged 27 appearances, during which he has created merely 20 chances from the full-back role, which isn’t a noteworthy figure at all. His crosses, tackling and attacking prowess have been diminishing and a serious uplift is of paramount importance at the moment.
