I'm back to my best - Carew

Aston Villa John Carew believes he is back to his best after recovering from the back problem which sidelined him for nearly three months.

The Norwegian international netted his 13th goal of the campaign during Sunday's 3-3 draw with Everton to make him joint leading scorer alongside Gabriel Agbonlahor.

Carew said: "I feel good. Because of the injury it's been a lot of goals in very few games for me this season."

He added: "If I hadn't been out for three or four months then it could have been a lot more. It could have been 20 goals easily but you never know.

"I'm just happy to be back. I had netted quite a lot of goals before I got injured with my back and now I've just continued on from there. I lost about 20 games which is a pity.

"My body feels better and better. I'm not far from my best. I'm more or less around 100%."

Villa boss Martin O'Neill feels Carew can be one of the best strikers in the Barclays Premier League but Carew knows the injuries have halted his progress.

He said: "I always want to be the best and I always hope to fulfil my potential.

"But, of course, injury setbacks like that one recently always make it difficult."
