Agbonlahor tips Davis to start v Fulham

Gabby Agbonlahor has called on Dean Smith to hand Keinan Davis his first Premier League start of the season for Aston Villa against Liverpool.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Villa captain labelled Davis a “menace” who will be an unknown quantity to the shaky Liverpool defence.

The 23-year-old changed the game for the Midlands giants last weekend when he helped inspire their comeback against Fulham.

He grabbed his first Premier League assist for Villa’s second goal as they ran out 3-1 winners.

“He’s a great option to have to come off the bench,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“Dean Smith will just be hoping whenever he gets on the pitch he can make a similar impact, not just here and there, he’ll want him to do it every time he gets on the pitch.
