Few pundits waxing lyrical about Villa from their performance against Liverpool yesterday.
This one on Sky:
Nicholas - Villa made a statement today.. 15th December 2012.. Charlie Nicholas believes Aston Villa finally showed what they are capable of after beating Liverpool 3-1 at Anfield as they sent a statement to the league. See: www.skysports.com
Then there was Lawro and Alan Shearer on Match of the Day last night.
"Villa started all over the place and Liverpool missed great chances in the first 15-20 mins. So how did Villa manage to end up winners?
Well, they managed to win because they started to get themselves organised and then the tackles came in and you know what? Every single one of them today was committed"
He added, "When the ball was there to be won, they won the ball, they managed to get all sorts of people back as the half went on. Liverpool still made chances but Villa really got on with it, no heads dropped, that was the great thing about them, they got on with it even when under pressure."
He also added that despite Christian Benteke being the stand out man, "It was a real team performance".
