MATCH QUOTES

"Next week you will see different Villa from the one you saw tonight. “I am sure of that. “For a start we should have three of our first choice defence back, and that Is bound to make difference. "Norwich showed that while you are willing to fight you will get something, and until we learn do that we will always be second best." Tony Barton.
