Gabriel Agbonlahor is predicting a "big future" for Aston Villa newcomer and fellow striker Christian Benteke.

The Belgium international has quickly showed his potential since joining in the summer and his two goals at Swindon on Tuesday night sealed a 3-2 win for Villa and a place in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup.

Agbonlahor, who scored Villa's other goal against the Robins, has been impressed with the 21-year-old, and said: "Christian gives us a different option and he can hold the ball up similar to when John Carew was here. He can also win a lot of aerial balls and he can finish as he showed at Swindon. It was world-class finishing."
