MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€œIt has been six months of hard work and a group of players who are working hard for the shirt,โ€ said Smith. Club record signing Wesley, bought from Club Bruges for ยฃ22m in the summer, and Anwar El Ghazi scored the goals at Villa Park for the home sideโ€™s first triumph in the top flight since February 2016. Former Brentford boss Smith said: โ€œWe are in the Premier League after a 10-match winning run in the Championship and winning in the play-off final. There is a togetherness with all off us and the noise is great to hear. โ€œI am more pleased to get the first points in the Premier League. Our performances have been OK, Tottenham was tough first up and we were good for an hour. โ€œWe played well against Bournemouth and from the supporters there is a lot of optimism. They stuck right behind us. โ€œI donโ€™t think there is any extra expectations from the supporters. We have a really good bond.โ€
