Manager Tim Sherwood said Friday that Agbonlahor is still carrying his calf injury, making him a serious doubt for Saturday's match against Stoke City, the Birmingham Mail reports.

With Agbonlahor likely sidelined, Rudy Gestede, who scored twice against Liverpool last weekend, is likely to keep his starting spot for at least another week.

Manchester City has yet to allow a goal this season, and thanks to his role in their attack, Aleksandar Kolarov grabs the top spot in the weekly defender rankings yet again.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor (calf) is not in the 18-man squad for Saturday's match against Liverpool.

Agbonlahor picked up the injury during the midweek Capital One Cup match against Birmingham and hadn't trained before the match, so he was always a long shot to play. His next opportunity will come Oct. 3 against Stoke City.

Agbonlahor (calf) came off at halftime of Villa's mid-week clash with Birmingham City and hasn't trained since. As a result, manager Tim Sherwood said, "He's a doubt. He hasn't trained yet but we'll give him every chance."

While the pacey goal scorer has yet to open his account this season, he's still arguably the team's best threat up front alongside Jordan Ayew and Rudy Gestede. The 28-year-old has made 358 appearances for Aston Villa and is a true stalwart of the team's starting XI, whose presence would be sorely missed if he was forced out of the lineup.

Agbonlahor led Villa with four key passes and recorded an assist in a 3-2 loss to Leicester City on Sunday.

Agbonlahor is arguably Villa's best player and they'll need him to be in top-form if they are to stay up this season. The talented Englishmen has top-notch speed and his job will be to attack down the flanks all season long to set-up others and to lead the team in goals as the top striker. That's a lot to ask out of him, but it does make him valuable for fantasy purposes as Villa's only true threat. Look for him to start again next Saturday against West Brom

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor recovered from an illness and will be available for Sunday's match against Leicester City.

With lots of competition for playing time up front, Agbonlahor has had trouble breaking through as a consistent starter, which severely limits his fantasy upside.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor took one shot (one on target) in Friday's defeat to Manchester United.

The speedy forward had trouble finding room to operate against the suddenly stout United back four. He had his best opportunity of the game comfortably saved by Sergio Romero with his head and another opportunity nullified by an offsides call. After six goals in 35 appearances last season, the 28-year-old speedster will try to fill the void left by the departure of Christian Benteke in the goal scoring department.

Agbonlahor (ankle) is starting Saturday against Bournemouth.

Agbonlahor suffered the injury last Tuesday, but he's recovered in time to lead the line with Scott Sinclair on Saturday. There will be plenty of pressure on Agbonlahor to score this season after the club sold Christian Benteke to Liverpool, though a double-digit goal output seems unlikely.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor suffered a leg injury during Tuesday's friendly against Molineux, and he could miss the Premier League season opener Aug. 8 against Bournemouth, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Agbonlahor was a solid second fiddle to Christian Benteke last season, as Villa staved off relegation, but with the Belgian striker sold to Liverpool this summer, Agbonlahor will surely have to take on a bigger part of the scoring load. While he is likely to take more shots, a vast increase in fantasy production is unlikely.
