thumbnail Hello,

Frenchman happy with Cuellar's form...

Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier is worried about the fitness of striker Gabriel Agbonlahor.

The 23-year-old marskman has been suffering from injury-related problems this season, as he missed the Birmingham-based club's first three games this term.

The striker featured during the League Cup victory over Blackburn Rovers, but had to be withdrawn at an early stage as he pulled up with a problem.

"My concern is Gabby because he again has felt his groin," Houllier told reporters.

"We will have to investigate a bit more. The calf problem has gone now. Now it's gone up his body. I hope it doesn't get much higher."

In the meantime, the positive news for the Frenchman is that he now has a selection headache of the right sort owing to the Carlos Cuellar's form.

"That sort of headache I can take. A bad headache is when you've not got enough players," he noted.

"Carlos looked strong and solid and reminded me of [Liverpool's] Jamie Carragher. He goes for everything in the air and is brave."
