MATCH SUMMARY

๐Ÿ•’ HT Villa 2-1 United. Villa do a Brentford on United to go 2 up in 11โ€™ and look not just the equals but significant betters than their opponents who are 10 points ahead in the table in fifth place. A late, lucky, deflected shot, barely celebrated by the Mancs halves the deficit on the stroke of half time. ๐Ÿ•’ HT Villa 3-1 United. Villa almost score immediately after the restart through Leon Bailey before minutes later Jacob Ramsey hits the back of the net after a sublime move. United have no response and the leniency of the ref keeps them with 11 players on the field. Villa meanwhile are in their pomp.

KEY MAN

Jacob Ramsey, 50th start for the club aged just 21 and certainly one of his best

TEAM NEWS

Unai Emeryโ€™s first squad sees Jacob Ramsey recalled to the line up and Lucas Digne return from injury. Boubacar Kamara also returns to the bench well ahead of schedule for an injury that was thought likely to keep him out for the rest of 2022.

Meanwhile, Philippe Coutinho (injury) and Cameron Archer are out of the squad entirely as is Marvelous Nakamba once again.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œDay 1. Big challenge ahead. As big as the greatness of @AVFCOfficial.โ€ Unai Emery --- โ€œMy dream is to win a trophy with Aston Villa. โ€œItโ€™s my personal challenge at the beginning. My second dream, my objective will be to play in Europe. โ€œI am happy to be here. I decided to come here because itโ€™s a great project and our ambition is going to be together, step-by-step. โ€œI want to improve here, to help with my experiences. โ€œWe have to start thinking only the next match because we are not in a good position in table. โ€œEach match is going to give us a lot of information about the players. I want to test them individually and collectively. The next match is my only focus.โ€ Unai Emery. --- โ€œI am so happy to be here and to share with you this new project. The Premier League is a top league in Europe and a big challenge for me. To be here at Aston Villa is because I [want to] create history. Itโ€™s not my return because itโ€™s the Premier League, itโ€™s because itโ€™s the right club and the right project. โ€œIn all my life, the football is my first objective after my life with my family and my friends. I am a professional man and I love football and I want to achieve everything, new challenges. โ€œWhen Aston Villa were calling me, it was amazing. My new challenge here in the Premier League at this club with the history and the supporters, they want to do something important again. They convinced me quickly and above all professionally itโ€™s a step ahead. โ€œI didnโ€™t know him (Nassef Sawiris) before but when he called we started speaking about his passion of football and me as a coach, how I can help him to show my professional idea and my passion. It was the key and those conversations with him [Sawiris] were really big to convince and trust in this way. It is going to be difficult but I am excited. โ€œThey were so clear. The decision was difficult but the message was clear for me. We want your experience, we want your capacity to achieve some objective in your career as a coach and your experiences in the Premier League gave you more experiences for the present now. We want to improve and create a new future and go up. โ€œI know and I watched matches, they are good players but they are now underperforming. They are now less confident than usual. My first step is to help them achieve their best performance during each training, each match and being together. โ€œAmbition is very important. With ambition you can think in short term because if the next matches you do not win itโ€™s going to be difficult. I want to improve first the playersโ€™ confidence, I believe in them but I know they are underperforming and short-term is the first step I want to do. โ€œThe break will help us. After 10 days we are going to be off, we are going to start again, we will have training days to improve and create an identity and our style.โ€ โ€œItโ€™s a new challenge. The Premier League is a tough challenge for me, I think I can improve here with Aston Villa and with the challenge I am going to give the players with me. โ€œIโ€™m looking forward to be there with the supporters and wishing to feel their push, the atmosphere and to play at home for me is so important to create that big atmosphere, helping us with our supporters. โ€œFirst, I want every supporter to be proud of how we work and how we can show our capacity on the pitch. I like the position of the ball but when we can progress, be aggressive, attacking the spaces and play with energy. I was watching our players in the training session, before matches they played and we have players with energy and good skills. Between everybody we are going to share that and achieve our identity, out style, for every supporter to be proud of us.โ€ Unai Emery. --- โ€œHis track record speaks for itself. His arrival is perhaps the most important moment and most important step since our promotion from the Championship. โ€œUnai will have the personal support of the owners in driving forward our first team and also continue the crucial work of bringing young talent through from our academy, which we all believe is so fundamental to our long-term success and stability.โ€ Christian Purslow conveniently forgets his last managerial appointment. --- โ€œI watched every match they played, because the first information I have is watching matches but I want to start thinking, โ€œI watch only to have some information from them, from each player, but really I want to start now and the message is a new message, maybe the position is going to be different and I want to use each training session to improve, to test, to take information from them and for me Sunday is the first match in my mind for use with them. โ€œWe were watching this morning the last match Aston Villa played against Manchester United and the result was so short. โ€œEach match, each result close to them and really I have confidence and the players are confident as well, and we were this morning working and thinking and doing the first analysis of Manchester United. โ€œI think we are now thinking to be on Sunday with our supporters, I think itโ€™s so important to play here in Villa Park with our supporters because I think we are better with them.โ€ Unai Emery. --- โ€œMaybe I was dreaming. โ€œToday I am so happy. โ€œThe supporters were amazing supporting us and the players were great with the plan. First step is take confidence, start with energy and the supporters supported with their response. โ€œWe have the players with the good skills. The way we played the 90 minutes we can be optimistic but only first step and we have to work a lot to keep improving. โ€œWe have players with energy. We have players with good skills and we wanted to be united, to be disciplined and, being together with our game plan, the players did it. It was a special day. โ€œMy challenge here is to be consistent. Today was so important to win given we havenโ€™t beat them here in a long time. The positive energy from the supporters is necessary for the players. It was all perfect. I have passion and I have to stay calm myself and I will tell the players on Tuesday, โ€˜We have only made the first stepโ€™. We did it but now we must keep consistent. โ€œWe were speaking about the game plan and I think the players did it perfectly. It was about going against them! I tried to keep the possession, tried to break their high pressing and to get out midfielders, Buendia and Ramsey, and then attack with Bailey and Watkins on their last defence. โ€œThe players played in their position and I wanted everybody to feel good playing with their characteristics. The shape, for me, is not so important. We tried to use the spaces where Manchester United let us do our job. โ€œWe know the players have pace, rhythm, energy, skill. The same with (John) McGinn, Danny Ings, they play a lot of matches with the same idea with the players with the energy and the pace we want but, today, I decided to play with those players and they were thinking and showing desire from the first minute to 90 minutes.โ€ Unai Emery. --- โ€œThere has been a lot of tactical work this week and the game plan worked. When the new gaffer came in he said it was a clean slate. He gave us a lot of confidence and belief and I think it showed on the pitch.โ€ Jacob Ramsey --- โ€œFinallyโ€ฆ Thanks a lot for this great reception Villa Park! Much appreciated.โ€ Morgan Sanson. --- โ€œProud of the lads today! What a performance by everyone!! Fans were incredible again today too!โ€ Emiliano Martรญnez. --- โ€œBig result, big performance from everyone and big 3 points. UTV.โ€ Ashley Young. --- โ€œGreat performance by everyone & +3 points at Villa Park.โ€ Tyrone Mings. --- โ€œHope you liked that Villans, happy Sunday!โ€ Ezri Konsa. --- โ€œWhat a day, what a performance! UTV.โ€ Matty Cash. --- โ€œWhat a game, what a stadium!โ€ Lucas Digne. ---
