Andre Green: Aston Villa winger out for 'months' following hamstring surgery

Tipped by many as the favourites for the title this season, the Villans have accumulated seven points and just one win from their opening seven fixtures and were last night held to a goalless draw at home by Middlesbrough.

Monk said: "I think your job as a manager, when you are working with players, is to try to help them realise what they can be, and what they need to do to reach their full potential". We understand we've had a bad start in terms of points but in terms of some of the performances we've put in.

Villa had a man advantage for nearly an hour of play following Adama Traore's dismissal in the fourth minute but once again failed to find the net, three days after the same result against a struggling Brentford at Villa Park.

The emergence of Keinan Davis and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy from the Under-23s is a huge bonus for the future, but it could take some time for them to bed in.

"The frustration is that we haven't scored again and then of course the negativity comes out that we're unattractive and all the rest of it".

Boro boss Monk, meanwhile, will be seeking evidence that Saturday's polished 3-0 win at Bolton - which saw Adama Traore torment the hosts with an outstanding display - was not a one-off, more specifically in terms of the feats of the former Villa winger.
