TEAM NEWS

With captain Jack Grealish once again ruled out through injury despite Dean Smith's expectations that he would return after the international break. Smith, facing his worst spell, and most worrying spell as Villa boss named a largely unchanged line up with El Ghazi replacing Trรฉzรฉguet.

โ€‹Mounting criticism of Smith's 'creative' players El Ghazi, Trรฉzรฉguet and Traorรฉ together with his insistence on playing John McGinn in a deep midfield position despite his sparkling form as an attacking midfielder at international level, meant a change in tactics and deployment was expected and necessary in order for Smith to deliver a result against bottom three side Fulham.

โ€‹A bench of only moderate quality, with a significant chunk facing the end of their contracts and/or Villa careers meant options to change a game were once more limited - a situation exacerbated by Smith's tendency to use substitutions as if by rote who had made little or no impact across the previous ten fixtures.

โ€‹Harsh as it was, Smith was under real pressure to prove the doubters wrong after a fairy tale custodianship of Villa had begun to show signs of souring.

MATCH QUOTES

Post Match *Sunday, 4 April 2021* *Villa manager Dean Smith* "It was a laboured game in general from both sides, we're at that stage of the season. You want your subs to come on and make an impact and they did that. "Trezeguet was key, he came on and made the difference. He took his opportunity, all three who came on did. It's a mistake from Tyrone Mings that doesn't happen often, he's very pleased we turned it around. There weren't many chances in the game. "After the restart last year we had 10 games left and Trezeguet came up big for us. He should have had three or four goals already this season so he'll be pleased with his impact today. "Our season has been up and down, but we can produce moments of brilliance to win games. We've needed to win without Jack Grealish, people say we can't play without him but we've got goals in the team." "I'm not sure [the substitutions] were inspired but they made the impact you want. The minimum you want is for them to run more and faster than the person who's just come off. Trezeguet has been unfortunate this season, he's missed a lot of chances, but he's scored two today and won us the game. "I thought the performance was a little bit laboured from both teams. There's a lot of teams battling for performances at the moment. "It's been a long hard season. We were hoping the break had done us good and we showed spells of energy in the first half. "All results are important, they're hard to come by in the Premier League and we've got a tough game next up against the champions. It was a hard fought win and it's nice to come back from behind because we haven't done that this season." On Jack Grealish's fresh injury concerns: "It only happened yesterday when he was sore, so we'll probably go and get that scanned and see where he is." "He had trained in the week but he had some discomfort in training yesterday. He was all for playing but had discomfort and we have to be cautious. We'll see how it goes." --- *Sunday, 4 April 2021* *Villa's leading goalscorer Ollie Watkins* "Coming off the back of the international break, we've had a little bit of time to gather ourselves, refresh and go again. "Our aim between now and the end of the season is to win as many games as possible. We know we're capable of it. "We started the season strongly and had a bit of a dip. Hopefully I can score more goals and help and the team." "Without the substitutes we probably would have lost that game. They changed the game and got us back into it. They had fresh legs and energy, and Keinan Davis is such a strong guy with a presence up front. He won the ball back at a crucial time and it turned into a goal. "When we got into the final third our movement was a bit slow. It just wasn't falling for us. But we dug in, got the chances in the end and saw the game out. "Trezeguet works so hard so he deserves it. He's always getting in there and credit to him. "We haven't come from a goal down and won very often so we've shown character. In the last few weeks we've been trying but it's not come off for us. Hopefully we can go on a run now and get back to how we were playing at the start of the season." --- *Sunday, 4 April 2021* *Villa goalscorer Trรฉzรฉguet* "It was an amazing game, I am happy for the three points and my goals. I haven't scored for a long time but I believe I will score, I knew it would come. "I hope I continue at the same level now and all of the team will go forward. This game was very important to give us confidence. "Jack Grealish is very important, we miss him but we win without him today." ---
