MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€I told the players after the game this is the bottom of where Iโ€™ve been so far in my managerial career. And it should be the bottom of where Aston Villa is. Iโ€™m an Aston Villa fan and to lose 3-0 two weeks on the spin is very, very disappointing. That performance was rubbish - it was very poor. โ€œAnd Iโ€™ve got to earn my money now and make sure it never happens again. There was nothing between the two sides in the first half, apart from the late goal. We had good possession at times, so did they, but nobody really opened anybody up. I just thought that in the second half we got a little bit frustrated and started playing a little bit too much as individuals rather than as a team.โ€
