Gueye injury scare for Villa
Senegal midfielder Idrissa Gueye is to undergo a scan on a hamstring injury sustained during his country’s 2-0 victory over Namibia.
The 25-year-old has took former fans’ favourite Fabian Delph’s place in the Aston Villa side, following his summer departure to Manchester City.
But Villa boss Tim Sherwood will be hoping the injury isn’t as bad as first thought, with the tough-tackling defensive midfielder being a key part for Villa in early season.
He has starred in all four of the club’s Premier League games so far this campaign. While Villa are keen to ensure they will not contest another relegation battle this campaign.
Gueye is tipped to become a top Premier League footballer over the coming seasons, after making the switch from Lille this summer.
