MATCH QUOTES

โ€I know there is a big expectation at home but we were playing the best team currently in England. I donโ€™t have any reproach for my players. โ€œI have the feeling that the best team won but I have regrets. To concede an early goal - we did not want that. You donโ€™t expect that. โ€œIn the second half it was a good reaction. The performance is not the one you expected but I never saw a player wearing the Villa shirt that was not proud to do that. โ€œI knew the size of the challenge before coming. Now we have games that we have to win against direct opponents. The next few matches will be crucial for us.โ€ Reฬmi Garde, Sunday, 13 December 2015.
