MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€œI donโ€™t think our goalkeeperโ€™s made a save. โ€œWeโ€™re devastated by the fifth goal because thatโ€™s something we shouldโ€™ve been better at.โ€ *Villa four-goal hero Tammy Abraham* โ€œThese kind of games are great to watch at home on the sofa because itโ€™s really entertaining. โ€œBut when youโ€™re on the pitch itโ€™s just end to end and you have to keep getting ready for a chance.โ€
