Agbonlahor took four shots Saturday but he ultimately never connected as Aston Villa drew to a 0-0 tie with West Ham.

Agbonlahor will likely see more opportunities to shoot with the ongoing suspension of Christian Benteke. Considering that Benteke isn't eligible to return until Dec. 2, Agbonlahor will have two more opportunities against Southampton and Burnley with increased looks.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Agbonlahor was forced to miss Saturday's match against Manchester City with an illness that he came down with right before kickoff, the Express and Star reports.

Agbonlahor will have plenty of time to get over his illness since the international break will allow him to rest until Oct. 18 when Villa faces Everton in Premier League play. The 27-year-old has scored two goals on the season and will be a threat to Everton if he's ultimately deemed fit ahead of the match.

Agbonlahor signed a new four-year contract with Aston Villa after working on an extension the past few weeks, reports Sky Sports.

Agbonlahor joined Villa in 1994, and said that he has only ever wanted to play for Villa. He made his first-team debut for the side in 2006.

Agbonlahor played all 90 minutes for Aston Villa on Saturday against Stoke City.

Agbonlahor looks to have won the starting spot up front and will be a potent option to score for the Villans with Libor Kozak (leg) and Christian Benteke (Achilles) out for the near future.

Agbonlahor has successfully competed in five Villa friendlies this preseason.

Agbonlahor has the inside track to starting up front for Villa this season since Libor Kozak (leg) and Christian Benteke (Achilles) won't be available until mid-October. However, he hasn't netted any goals in five preseason performances, so there may be better options elsewhere.

Agbonlahor, who missed Wednesday's match against Manchester City with a knee injury, is expected to play Sunday against Tottenham, the club's official web site reports.

Agbonlahor has four goals and five assists in 29 appearances this season.

Agbonlahor missed training Thursday after coming down with an illness, and he could miss Saturday's match against Fulham, the Birmingham Mail reports.

With Christian Benteke now out for the season after rupturing his Achilles in Thursday's training session, there will be more pressure on Agbonlahor to put the ball into the net. Suffering an illness before a matchup against the Premier League's worst defense isn't a great way to start.

Agbonlahor assisted on both of Aston Villa's goals in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Liverpool, but had to be subbed off in the 49th minute after crashing over the ad boards along the touchline.

Agbonlahor now has three goals and five assists in 18 Premier League appearances this season, including two goals and two assists in his last four starts. The injury didn't appear serious, although he did have to be removed, so the severity of the injury will likely be determined after scans are taken.
