ON THIS DAY

Dean Smith on the return of Jack Grealish:

โ€œIt makes a big difference, because heโ€™s a top player and when youโ€™ve got top players in your team youโ€™ve got better chances of winning football games. You can always try to improve. The aim of the game is to score goals, so you need to create chances, but the downside of that is you maybe leave yourselves a bit more open. But our last performance here against Liverpool, we were very unfortunate to lose that game, it was a terrific performance and we need the same again tonight.โ€

Steve Bruce on Villa:

โ€œI had the privilege to manage the club for a couple of years. It didnโ€™t quite go the way we wanted but Iโ€™ve been in football a long time, so you understand thatโ€™s what happens. But of course when you get the sack you want to come back and haunt a few. But look, I had a tremendous time here but if we could win, that would obviously be great.โ€

Steve Bruce on the cabbage:

โ€œIt was one of the most unsavoury times of my career. I thought it was a ball to begin with, it was a big old thing. How the fan got it into the stadium I donโ€™t know. It didnโ€™t miss be my much. The fans can throw some things, but a cabbage? I went the next day so I didnโ€™t have time to get angry about it. โ€œI got criticised [by Villa fans], but for 18 months only Manchester City scored more goals than us โ€ฆ theyโ€™re a difficult lot. Great club, great support with great history, but it was in a mess.โ€

โ€œIt was arguably my most difficult job, even more difficult than this. We didnโ€™t know if we were going to get paid in May and June. It was practically close to the wall. It never got that far but there was a threat at the end of the month that we couldnโ€™t pay the wages. It was the worst and probably the most difficult six weeks after the play-off game, it was unrivalled from where we were.โ€

โ€œTo be fair to the chief executive at the time he had kept it quiet for three or four months. We were aware we couldnโ€™t bring anyone in but financially we didnโ€™t realise the enormity of it until he got the sack. It was a really difficult time. Thenโ€ฆthe new owners came in and everything changed very, very quickly. If they hadnโ€™t come in so quickly I would have feared for a great club the way it was, because we were practically bust.โ€

MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€œThis is a really tough league and we have just gone through a period of playing Manchester City and Liverpool, which were games I thought we actually played well in. The table is so tight but you need to put a run together, be tough to beat and keep a clean sheet. Iโ€™m really pleased with the clean sheet tonight as we havenโ€™t had too many of those this season. Our form has been good but we knew it would be hard, but I think weโ€™ve been competitive. It takes time gel defensively but I think we achieved that against Newcastle.โ€
