WATCH: Gabby Agbonlahor scores the winning goal in the derby

Never thought I'd type that title today.

If you told me that Gabby Agbonlahor would be the guy to score the winning goal in the derby in 2017, I'd laugh.

It's true though, and I can't quite believe it.

Luckily, you don't have to take my word for it, check out the video of the goal below:

There's something beautiful about that goal, I won't lie. Maybe it's birthday boy Nathan Baker throwing himself into the ball, maybe it's the scrappy nature of it, I don't know.

What I do know, is that Gabby Agbonlahor, once loved, now disgraced, has done it, for what will maybe be the last time. As 'Don't Look Back in Anger' plays at Villa Park, today, now, maybe it's a fitting end to the game, and to Gabby's career.
