ON THIS DAY

Gรฉrard Houllier fielded a second new signing in consecutive games as Jean Makoun, a ยฃ5.58m from Olympique Lyonnais, taking Villa's investment in Houllier to just shy of ยฃ25m. Yet for all the concern at the purse strings opening nine months too late, Houllier had recorded consecutive League wins for the first time as Villa rose to 13th in the table, six points clear of the drop zone.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI was slightly questioning the fact that, on the back of the Manchester City performance, we would be flat physically. โ€œIn fairness to the boys, though, I think they responded extremely well. They kept focused and determined. It was not an easy game, they were just three points behind us. โ€œWigan started well, they started with the foot flat on the pedal. [But] we managed to stay composed and had a couple of chances. And in the second half I thought we dominated most of the game, controlled it and passed the ball around. โ€œWe probably deserved the lead and at 2-1, that is where I think the team has mentally progressed and improved. โ€œThere was no sign of panic. They threw everything to get an equaliser but we stayed in place.โ€
