MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€œThe officials know theyโ€™ve made a mistake. โ€œBut we canโ€™t change it now. Everyone in the ground has seen it except the people that mattered. โ€œWe were fortunate for our first goal with the deflection but, in the second half, weโ€™ve gone toe to toe with a team who were in the Premier League last season and created the better chances. โ€œWe had chances to kill it off. Last week I was praising Tammy Abraham for his extendable legs. This time they got in his way. But thatโ€™s football.โ€
