MATCH QUOTES

Post Match *Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€‹โ€œI told the players that itโ€™s a difficult league to win games in, but we have thrown three points away by basic errors. โ€œWe spoke about their set pieces but they (Burnley) showed more desire. โ€œWe also didnโ€™t defend a hopeful cross (that led to Chris Woodโ€™s late winner) and that can happen if youโ€™re not always on it.โ€ Undoubtedly, though, the challenge they face is to start seeing off teams earlier and stay switched on if they canโ€™t. โ€œWith the quality weโ€™ve got, we should be scoring more goals โ€” we should have had three in the first half โ€” and defending better at the back,โ€ Smith continued. โ€œI canโ€™t say Iโ€™ve been disappointed with these players too often this season but I certainly am now.โ€ โ€œYou donโ€™t win nine out of the first 18 games without a ruthless streak so Iโ€™ve got no complaints with the performances this season.โ€ ---
