Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton insists he wants to reach the high standards set by team-mate Gabriel Agbonlahor.
Albrighton admits he is regularly left speechless by the quality that Agbonlahor produces in training, and that he aspires to match his ability.
Agbonlahor has also shown that form in the Premier League this season and Albrighton accepts that other players in the squad must raise their game.
"He's been unbelievable, he always had the talent," Albrighton told the club's official website.
"He has been incredible in matches but in training he is brilliant too. He just pulls things out of the bag when you least expect it."
He added: "He will take on three or four players and stick it in the top corner.
"He takes your breath away with some of the things he does. He's always had that.
"He's getting better every season. I know he struggled to make an impact last term, but he had a lot of niggling injuries, which had a major say on his season.
"But in general terms he's developing. People used to say the name Gabby Agbonlahor and they'd think 'pace'. But now he's got everything."
