Gerard Houiller’s reign as Aston Villa manger as hot off to a flying start, with two wins out of two, the latter being a brilliant display against Wolves.

The winner in that game came from an unlikely source of Emile Heskey, the only striker in the world who doesn’t seem to score. His late header earned Houiller victory in his first Premier League game.

Gerard seemed happy enough after what he described as: ‘A great win for the fans, as it was a derby but also a great win because we had to fight for it. They made it hard for us and credit to the boys for sticking it’.

Houiller is already planning a victory at White Hart Lane, which will be a hard place to go. He is thinking about playing his man of the moment Carlos Cuellar on the right, as Richard Dunne returns back this weekend.

But this crisis is something Houiller welcomes, ‘That headache I can take. A bad headache is when you've not got enough players,’ He said.

Also this week, Gerard told of how he thinks Cuellar reminds him of Jamie Carragher. He also praised his performance against Wolves.

He said: ‘Carlos Cuellar looked strong and solid. He reminded me of Jamie Carragher. He goes for everything in the air – brave, that’s the word.’

Even James Collins said some words, ‘Carlos was called upon to play and he was superb.’ Yet this weekend he may have to go back to second fiddle behind Richard Dunne, who was there starting centre back.

So this weekend will be tough for Villa but with a new manager and a new winning mentality maybe they may surprise a few when it comes to five o’clock on Saturday evening.
