MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€œWe deserve more points than weโ€™ve got since the restart. โ€œBut I donโ€™t want to be a valiant loser, weโ€™re scrapping for points. โ€œTo out-shoot Liverpool at home at Anfield, in terms of efforts on goal, itโ€™s excellent - but we need to take our opportunities. We never found the quality in the final third they did.โ€
