3 things we learned – Southampton vs Aston Villa

1. Southampton defense a base to build on: No one has accused Ralph Hasenhuttl of being too expansive or defensively naive in the three years he’s been on the south coast of England, so it’s no surprise that Saints are enjoying a strong run of results (3W-1D-0L) on the back of the defense which has now conceded just two goals in its last four games. Alex McCarthy only had lớn make three saves lớn keep the clean sheet on Friday, và only one of them posed any real threat.

2. Aston Villa’s kết thúc product gone with Grealish: It’s becoming clearer & clearer with each passing trò chơi just how influential and important Jack Grealish was khổng lồ Aston Villa as he ascended khổng lồ the realm of $140-million players. Aston Villa are feeling his departure both in terms of the number of chances created, but more importantly in the quality of chances. Ollie Watkins, who is still more of an inside forward from the left, looks uncomfortable leading the line without Grealish’s service, while Leon Bailey and Emiliano Buendia have combined for only two goals & three assists as the creative cogs tasked with replacing Grealish.

3. Time running out for Dean Smith… question mark: On the one hand, you’d think that Dean Smith has done enough over the last three years — getting Aston Villa back to the Premier League và guiding them lớn an 11th-place finish in their second season back in the đứng đầu flight — lớn have bought himself an extended grace period, but memories (and goodwill) aren’t nearly as long as they used khổng lồ be in football. Fair or unfair, the clock is ticking.

Man of the Match: Adam Armstrong – It was a game with one moment of true quality, và it was as good as it was unexpected.

Not the shot anyone inside St. Mary’s expected, & probably not the outcome either, but it’s exactly what Saints needed given their struggles in front of goal this season (9 goals in 10 games, 2nd-fewest in the Premier League).
