MATCH QUOTES

โ€It is a big point. We have suffered a lot, Southampton created many chances and we were under pressure for long periods. But we showed a very good spirit. Iโ€™m happy about that. โ€œI prefer to have this solidarity in every game than have much more talent. Solidarity is the key when you are fighting relegation. If we show this spirit again we will get more points. โ€œThe talent at Aston Villa is not the same as at Manchester City or Arsenal but they still lose games.โ€ Reฬmi Garde, Saturday, 5 December 2015.
