Carew: I feel good, I knew that I would

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.

The former Valencia player has averaged nearly a goal every other game in his two years at Villa but injury niggles have curtailed his appearances.

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

"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."

Carew is part of a free-scoring Villa side but is aware that they have been guilty of leaking too many goals recently - 24 in the last 10 games.

He added: "It was a tough game against Everton and it was a game we probably should have won. We scored three goals and it should have been enough at home.

"We've conceded a few goals but we have to work on everything in our game. We score a lot of goals but maybe concede a few too many.

"But we came back from 3-1 down and had a lot of great performances through the whole team. The team was quite strong mentally."
