We Heard Aston Villa's Fans Getting On Them - Southampton Star

Danny Ings

The 24-year-old midfielder has once again been linked with a move away from Villa this week, but surely he is only focussed on picking up all three points for his club. Not only this, he is a fantastic character for the team.

"At 3-1 you could feel we were a bit nervous but it was normal".

A fairly frantic start to the game saw both sides searching for the all important opening goal at Villa Park.

"We lose a race against Long and we give away a free header".

Ings put Southampton 1-0 up in the 21st minute when he finished from close range, Shane Long's initial effort being saved by Aston Villa goalkeeper Tom Heaton.

Villa trail Southampton by three points ahead of Boxing Day's crucial visit of Norwich and next weekend's trip to Watford - the two teams directly below them. "Villa are going to have to come up with a plan to get out of trouble, and I worry for them".

"He takes a lot to do with it and he'll be very unhappy with all the goals really and the way the back four played as a unit." .

"The players have to take responsibility at times and so do I. We've conceded seven in the last two home games".

"There was no tactical element in the game, they got the ball back to front very quickly, made it hard, competed and won the second ball".

"They have to go out and prove they are Premier League players, they are Premier League players whether they like it or not".

John McGinn is set to miss up to three months after suffering a fractured ankle in Aston Villa's match against Southampton. "He got his studs caught in the turf", he said, quoted on Villa's official site.
