MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI was pleased with our performance up until the second goal, but we didnโ€™t take our chances. That took the wind out of our sails and we allowed a team with the quality they have got to open up the pitch and play keep-ball. โ€œI felt it was an unjust scoreline but weโ€™ve got a better squad of players this season and the depth and talent weโ€™ve got allows us to play in Chelseaโ€™s half and thatโ€™s what we did. โ€œI believe in this group of players that weโ€™ve got and we can go toe-to-toe with these teams now whereas two years ago we werenโ€™t able to.โ€ On COVID-19 quarantine rules that left Villa without Emiliano Martรญnez and Emiliano Buendรญa: โ€Weโ€™re all frustrated with the whole situation. Weโ€™re between a rock and a hard place. โ€œThey have Fifa World Cup qualifiers and you canโ€™t deny your players to play in that when theyโ€™ve been called up.โ€ Villa boss Dean Smith.
