Ollie Watkins has set his sights on breaking Aston Villa's Premier League goals record after reaching the milestone of 50 goals in the league. He is determined to chase down the current record holders, Dwight Yorke and Gabby Agbonlahor, who have scored 60 and 74 goals respectively for Villa in the Premier League. Watkins expressed his determination to continue improving and achieve more milestones, stating that his game is maturing and he has a better understanding of his role, making him more clinical.
"It's a very proud moment for me, but I'm not going to stop here, I'm going to get to 100 and push on from there."
Villa boss, Unai Emery, has also expressed the importance of winning their upcoming game against Manchester United to stay in the top four and secure a place in the Champions League. Watkins is aware of the pressure and acknowledges that the game is a must-win for the team. Despite the recent losses in the league and FA Cup, Watkins remains focused and driven to help Villa achieve their goals and win silverware with the club.
"This is a game we need to win on Sunday," he told the club's official site.
