MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€œI try to defend the players but today was not good enough. We got what we deserved. โ€œWe spoke about having a good start but in the first 20 minutes we never laid a glove on them. They were miles off it in the first half. โ€œLast week against Tottenham gave me a lot of heart then today, dreadful. We canโ€™t play that bad again. โ€œIt has to be the lowest of the low. The defeat at Watford (3-0 in December) was bad but this was on a par.โ€
