|14/1||Charles N'Zogbia is 14/1 with PaddyPower to score first in Fulham v Aston Villa
"I was always trying to think. Now I just try to play football. You'll see the real me. I scored my first goal this season against Manchester City in the League Cup.
"I'm in good form to carry on but now there's a bit of delay with the international break.
"But I need to really start to score in the Premier League and, if I start at Fulham on Saturday, I will try my best to do that.
"Whether I play more is down to the manager. As long as we have a good line of communication then there is no problem.
"It is the manager’s choice and I have to accept that. I must make sure I take my chances when they come."
