Luke Young reckons Villa now have a big enough squad to rotate – and that can be the key to a lasting run of success.

Their challenge for honours last season faded after Christmas when their squad was hit by injuries but Young feels they now have the strength in depth to overcome similar problems this term.

"Speaking after the 3-0 win over Hull which put them fifth, Young said: ‘There were times last season when I felt tired going into games.

‘With the squad and the depth we've got now, if someone is tired or carrying a knock, then you can afford to rest them. When the team is winning and doing well, I am not sure the manager likes to change it too much.

‘But sometimes it is circumstances that has made it happen at times and we are stronger this season to go all the way. Hopefully you won't see a tail end like last season and we'll be strong all the way through.’

Young says the squad is happy to accept squad rotation. ‘I think if the manager does it week in and week out, you sort of accept it a bit more but I think you can feel like you are dropped if the manager makes changes.

‘But, at the moment it is a very united squad, and everyone wants everyone to do well and if Habib Beye was playing instead of me, I'd be wanting him to do well.

‘It is that kind of environment at the moment. Hopefully that will take us all the way through the season.’
