ON THIS DAY

Steve Bruce's Villa lose a second successive game for the first time since February as Bruce once again makes a raft of seemingly destabilising changes, none of which appear to be fitness or injury related.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThe fourth official asked me four times to step inside my technical area within the first 12 minutes. It was him who gave the decision for Kodjia, and heโ€™s missed the first kick at him by the full-back. And thatโ€™s provoked him. โ€œWe have 3,500 people spending their hard-earned money, itโ€™s live on the telly and you never want to see it. They want to see the players perform. It cannot be deemed as violent conduct, surely. I hope the referee looks at it, because the referee didnโ€™t give it - the fourth official did.โ€ Steve Bruce, Monday, 17 April 2017.
