MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* “I am bitterly disappointed. We lost our structure for periods in the second half. First half we were on the front foot and looked solid. It is always going to be a tough game but we will never get a better chance to win. “The game became too open with them at 10 men. We lost our fearlessness but for some reason we retracted second half and put us under pressure. We scored again and had a good five minute spell but retracted again. The players lost a bit of belief and that is what disappointed me the most. “You look at the goals we conceded and they are sloppy. We concede a penalty and give a free-kick away. Second goal, Tyrone Mings has cushioned a header to Neil Taylor and should have put it out for a corner. “I thought it was penalty [for handball against Sokratis]. He leant towards the ball, which was going towards the goal. It has hit his arm so I don’t know why it wasn’t. But if you’re asking about handballs in the box these days, I don’t know and I don’t think anyone knows. We have seen some subjective ones. If they get a good view on the TV screens they need to overrule the on-field referee.” On his side’s form: “There is no big concern. We have had a real good go. Apart from Man City and Liverpool I don’t fear anyone in this league.” *Villa centre forward Wesley* “We are very disappointed. We had 11 men and Arsenal had 10. We have to win these games. For 60 minutes we played well. We scored a goal then stayed back and Arsenal scored three more goals. We have to work hard because you cannot lose like this.” *Villa midfielder John McGinn* “That is two weeks in a row that teams down to 10 men have affected us badly. We have addressed it in the dressing room. I don’t know if it is a lack of belief or tiredness, which it shouldn’t be. We should be creating the chances but we weren’t. We showed we are dangerous and scored a good goal, concede one and then show it again. But we got deeper and deeper and you can’t do that. It is game management. It has cost us dearly this season. When you force pressure on yourself you get punished. We need to capitalise when things go for us in the game. We are yet to get a VAR decision go our way. There was no surprise that (a late penalty call for handball) didn’t for us.”
