JOhn Carew has hailed the impact Emile Heskey has had on completition for places up front at Villa.

Carew believes part of the reason for that goal glut was the competition up front.

He told the Villa website: ‘I was pleased with how I ended the season. I scored a lot of goals - in not too many games. I was out for three months and it was such a shame I didn't get to play the whole season.

’I was out for quite a while with no idea when I was going to return. The club obviously needed a striker because we were short up front.

’Emile is a great player and we did well to sign him. I think he has done well and his arrival was good for competition up front. The more good players you have at a football club, the better for the team.

’Emile has been part of raising the levels, absolutely. We scored a lot of goals and I think the competition has helped us with that.

’His arrival certainly lifted my game. It made all the players - particularly the strikers - lift their level of performance. His arrival has been a positive thing - 100 per cent.
