thumbnail Hello,

The Austrian believes that he only needs a single strike to get back into top form this season, and he insists he is in good spirits despite the drought

Aston Villa forward Andreas Weimann has insisted that he is not worried about his lack of goals this term.

The Austrian has hit the back of the net just once in 10 Premier League appearances, scoring the winner against Manchester City on September 28.

However, the 22-year-old says it is only a matter of time before he starts scoring on a consistent basis.

"I have been playing okay," he told Aston Villa's official website. "I've certainly been getting chances.

"I just feel I have been on a run where I have been a bit unlucky where I haven't been able to finish.

"Every striker goes through phases like that. It's natural. It's part of the game. You can't have everything your own way all of the time.

"I would have liked to score more in this period but I still feel I have been contributing for the team.

"I just need that one goal to spark me. It could hit me on the shoulder, it could be a miskick - a goal is a goal and I think it will kickstart my season."

Weimann also suggested that Premier League defenders may now be more aware of his talents after his breakthrough campaign last season, but nonetheless, he remains confident in his ability to influence games.

"Perhaps defenders know a bit more about me this season," he continued. "Last term was my first proper season.

"They didn't know much about me. But all the talk at the start of this season was our front three - with Christian (Benteke) and Gabby (Agbonlahor) too - because we gelled towards the end of the season.

"I certainly don't feel low. If you miss a chance you feel down immediately afterwards but it's about keeping your spirits up and believing in yourself.

"I have plenty of confidence so I will just keep doing the right things and something will fall for me.

"I know I can score goals. I do it in training every day. I just have to keep going."
