MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce:* โ€Weโ€™ve created a lot of chances - and some really good opportunities too - and at this level you have to stick them away. Itโ€™s a problem that blighted us last season and it has raised its head again today. We relied too heavily on Kodj (Jonathan Kodjia) who we donโ€™t have at the moment. โ€œJohn (Terry) will give us huge experience, he didnโ€™t put a foot wrong. That kind of big experience is whatโ€™s needed at a big club like ours, with the expectation and anxiety around the place at times.โ€
