MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€œGoals change games, they always do. Anwar has missed a chance but they had a couple before that. We got in some really good areas. Some of our play was really good. โ€œI didnโ€™t think any of the goals were because of the tactics. I was quite happy when I saw they were playing a diamond in all honesty. We just didnโ€™t defend well enough for the goals. โ€œYou canโ€™t expect to win games at Villa Park when you concede 23 opportunities. I just feel our defensive structure needs to be better and our individual defending needs to be better. โ€œIt was one of those games where Tom kept the score down at the end. It could have been 8-4 as it went a bit basketball. But we wonโ€™t be the first or the last to be beaten by Leicester.โ€
