Aston Villa’s drive for a place in the Champions League suffered a serious setback on Friday when the club revealed that captain Martin Laursen will be out for two months.
The Danish defender has undergone surgery on an injured knee and will not be back in action for at least eight weeks, the club said.
Villa are currently fourth in the Premier League table, on track to claim one of England’s qualifying places for the Champions League at the expense of Arsenal.
