QUOTES

“I am very happy.

“The team is in a fantastic place and the mood is good but we have to remain cautious and keep resetting ourselves. Things can change quickly in this league.

“The game plan worked tonight for sure. The idea was to really dominate the middle of the pitch. We played through the press which gave us a lot of success through the transition. We were a real joy to watch going forward.

“We started both halves a little sloppy if there was one negative.”

Steven Gerrard.

“We have to keep going well.

“The size of the club is ready to go to the next level and hopefully I can be a part of that.”

Matty Cash.

**Calum Chambers scored a stunning goal as Aston Villa condemned Leeds United to a sixth successive Premier League defeat.**
Chambers curled home 17 minutes from time to cap a thoroughly satisfying evening for Villa - and a deeply dispiriting one for Leeds in manager Jesse Marsch’s first home match.
Villa took the lead after 22 minutes when Coutinho’s right-footed effort deflected off Pascal Struijk and wrong-footed Illan Meslier.
Leeds, who welcomed Patrick Bamford back from a three-month injury lay-off, improved after the break but it was ultimately in vain as Cash doubled Villa’s lead on 66 minutes and Chambers wrapped up the points with his first goal for the club.
Leeds’ 15th league defeat of the season leaves them 16th in the table, and having played more games than Everton and Burnley below them.
Steven Gerrard’s Villa, meanwhile, are ninth after a third consecutive win and clean sheet.
### Difficult night for new boss Marsch
Having started life as Leeds boss with a 1-0 defeat at Leicester, Marsch will have hoped a noisy Elland Road crowd could help lift his side to three much-needed points.
But they managed just one shot on target as their problems at both ends were laid bare by a vibrant Villa outfit.
The Whites have now failed to score in each of their past four games, but Villa have had no such issues of late - adding three goals to the four they netted against Southampton at the weekend.
The first here came when Lucas Digne was released down the left, his cross evaded Ollie Watkins and Cash pulled the ball back to Coutinho, who netted his fourth Villa goal, courtesy of a deflection.
Meslier almost gifted Villa a second when he passed straight to Watkins only to recover quickly, and Leeds had their French goalkeeper to thank at half-time as his saves to deny Douglas Luiz and John McGinn kept the visitors within reach.
Marsch replaced the ineffective Rodrigo with Joe Gelhardt at the break, and while Leeds showed glimpses of renewed purpose, Villa remained resolute at the back before Cash fired a low shot past Meslier to give Gerrard’s men a two-goal cushion.
Villa’s third came from unlikely source when Chambers found the top corner with a sublime right-footed strike that left Meslier flat-footed.
Leeds’ misery was compounded late on when left-back Junior Firpo left the field on a stretcher, and Marsch’s side may be without the Brazilian on Sunday, when bottom-placed Norwich visit Elland Road.
