59% possession to them?! Blimey! Job done, good all round performance in what was always going to be a scrappy game. Gets them that bit more match fit for the kick off against Man City as well. Nice to see Barry score and thought Young and Gabby goals were class

Shorey didnt look to good first half but was a lot better second. His first game for a while though. Thought Petrov played quite well and all in all a good honest performance from a terrific bunch of lads

Reo and his mate Coker i really dont know, they just can't pass, surely he worked on it before in pre season, he is an awful player at the moment......... out of position or in position he can't pass! ANyway an ok performance can only beat what is put in front of yer (cliche) I mean look at man city, lost at home! well taken goals by villa, dodgy lookin defence, Friedel looks class, Barry showed commitment and class, Villa need him!

I'm sorry, but I don't know where those stats came from!!! The percentage of play was the other way round, and no way did they have 12 "shots". They may have had 6 with about two on target. Anyway, that was not a game where you could make realistic assessments of who's playing well and who's not - as I saw it, once Villa went 2-up in 6 minutes, our lot didn't really seem to take the game very seriously after.

Thought Routledge looked decent when he came on. Got fouled a bit but played alright. Hopefully will give him a bit of confidence which is what I think he needs

result is a little one sided compared to how we played, very boring and full of mistakes, very lucky to be fair

Good result, gives M'ON the chance to play Routledge, Maloney, Harewood, Knight in the return leg and give a few of the 1st teamers a rest before the Liverpool game a few days after. Young and Barry were fantastic, and great to see Davies play a full competitve 90mins.

Man City lost at home today, they have big problems up front at the moment, hopefully Villa can make it a bad week for Hughes on Sunday.

we cant really compare this to any other game. the way we approached this is completely different to the way we will approach sundays game. same applies for city too, hence why we cant think about their result tonite in preparation for sunday. result is what matters the most. 59% possesion - so what? theres only 1 stat that matters: 4-1 job done!
