He’s a man in-form and after a series of Man of the Match displays and bagging his first goal of the season at Barnsley a week ago, Andreas Weimann stars as our featured interview in the Aston Villa edition of The Ram.

The 26-year-old, who comes face-to-face with his former club for the first time since leaving in 2015 this weekend, took time out to speak about growing up in Austria, his time at Derby County so far, his love for NFL and his form over the last few weeks.
