Villa's Moreno Out for Start of Season?

Alex Moreno, Aston Villa defender, could miss the start of the 2023-24 Premier League season after undergoing surgery on a hamstring injury. According to Villa boss Unai Emery, Moreno will be out for two to three months and is expected to return in early August. Moreno joined Villa in a £13.2m move from Real Betis in January and has played 19 times in the Premier League.

Moreno will not be able to play in the home match with Brighton on Sunday, where a Villa victory would take them into the Europa Conference League and secure European football for the first time since 2010. In a post on Twitter, Moreno said, “In an unexpected way, this hamstring injury came to me. It was bad news since we were in the final stretch of the season and struggling to get in to European competitions. I felt pain and a sensation I had never felt before, I knew something was not going well, but thanks to the club staff we were able to operate on Tuesday, everything went well.” He added that he will continue to cheer on the team from the stands at Villa Park and that he will give 200% of himself to come back stronger than ever.

Lucas Digne, who replaced Moreno in the starting line-up at Anfield, is in line to start against Brighton. The 2023-24 Premier League season begins on 12 August.
