MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce* โ€œWe have made a decent start and I am delighted for the players. A week ago they were quiet. There have been huge changes throughout the club. We have tried to breathe a bit of life back into the players. Thankfully when they respond, and get a couple of good results, that does no harm. โ€œWe have everything in place to try our best. It is going to be difficult but it is fair to say we can only get better.โ€
