The Ten strikers most feared by Aston Villa
When you think of Aston Villa strikers, a real mixed bag comes to mind. For every Dwight Yorke or Dion Dublin, there’s been a Marlon Harewood or Libor Kozak.
No doubt, however, the Villans have boasted some talented front-men throughout the Premier League era, such as John Carew, Christian Benteke and the cultiest of cult heroes Juan Pablo Angel.
But we at Football FanCast want to put the shoe on the other foot, by taking a look at the ten forwards who’ve caused the Birmingham outfit, and their fan base, the most torment, pain and anguish over the years.
So with the help of our bromantic buddies at Transfermarkt, here’s a rundown of the ten strikers with the best scoring (and assist) records against the 15th-placed Championship side.
Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool favourites feature, but there’s a fair few surprises along the way as well.
Maybe Villa fans wouldn’t mind staying in the second tier a little longer, with some of these fearsome front-men still on the loose in the top flight…
