Jack Grealish and Ross Barkley broke COVID-19 social distancing and other guidelines after the duo went to party on Barkley’s 27th birthday, they might miss out of Villa squad against Wolves on Saturday
The Aston Villa Head Coach spoke about the team’s current run of form, the absence of fans from a local derby and Saturday’s opponents Wolves.
Football’s based on performances and if you perform, you’ve got more chance of winning. We’ve performed very well this season, with the exception of Leeds.
All the other games that we’ve played and been beaten in, our performance levels have been good. We’ve had some freak goals against us.
In the last two games against Brighton and West Ham, we certainly deserved more with the performances we produced. Three games ago we beat Arsenal 3-0, so we’re not doing a lot wrong at the moment.
They’re one of the teams in the league that are tough to beat. You look at their last few seasons in this league and they’ve been the team that all promoted sides are trying to emulate.
They’ve lost some big players with Jota going to Liverpool and Raul Jimenez with the unfortunate head injury. They’re still a very good team with some very good players.
It’s always a concern that a team who very rarely gets beat by that margin will be smarting and looking forward to this game to put things right.
