ON THIS DAY

Despite a performance that deserved more Villa had now lost eight consecutive away games in the top division for the first time since December 1964.

Jack Grealish - the only survivor from the disastrous 2015-16 Premier League season to play today - had now lost in each of his last 19 appearances in the Premier League; the longest such run by any player in the competitionโ€™s history.

Midfielder John McGinn scored his 8th goal in 44 appearances and his first Premier League goal.

England goalkeeper Tom Heaton made his Villa debut aged 33 after joining from Burnley for a fee of ยฃ7,920,000 earlier this month

Belgian centre back Bjรถrn Engels made his Villa debut aged 25 after joining from Stade Reims for a fee of ยฃ7,200,000 in July 2019

Egyptian left winger Trรฉzรฉguet made his Villa debut aged 24 after joining from Kasimpasa for a fee of ยฃ9,000,000 in July 2019

Centre forward Wesley made his Villa debut aged 23 after joining from Club Brugge KV for a record fee of ยฃ22,500,000 in July 2019

Spanish winger Jota made his Villa debut aged 28 as a substitute on 59โ€™ after joining from Birmingham City in July 2019.

Midfielder Douglas Luiz made his Villa debut aged 21 as a substitute on 82โ€™ after joining from Manchester City for a fee of ยฃ15,120,000 in July 2019.

MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€œWe want to be competitive in this league. Next week weโ€™ll be walking out at Villa Park - but weโ€™ll be doing so with zero points and thatโ€™s something we have to work on. โ€œThe better team won on the day in the second half. We were perhaps unfortunate with the goals. Their physicality shone through in the end. โ€œThe first half performance and our defensive organisation was very good. Theyโ€™re not Champions League finalists for nothing - they have a very well coached group of players. โ€œWeโ€™re always learning lessons, todayโ€™s game has set a standard for us.โ€
