Trezeguet reflects on first season with Aston Villa after securing PL safety

Trezeguet reflects on first season with Aston Villa after securing PL safety”

For Aston Villa there is still plenty of work to be done, but they have at least given themselves a fighting chance and the completion of a remarkable escape is now in their own hands.

David Moyes reflected upon a satisfactory conclusion to West Ham United's Premier League campaign but was left with little doubt that his side need to positively push on come the new season.

After the draw at West Ham, a result combined with Watford's defeat at Arsenal, that kept Villa up, Smith said his side had proved the doubters wrong.

Jack Grealish gave the Villans a priceless lead late on in the game but a deflection allowed West Ham back into the game. "It (his future) will all be sorted over the next month".

Bournemouth's Danish midfielder Philip Billing (L) and Everton's English striker Anthony Gordon react at the end of the English Premier League football match between Everton and Bournemouth at Goodison Park in Liverpool, north west England on July 26, 2020.

That this situation even existed in the first place is a feather in the cap of Smith's side, who fought hard despite seemingly looking doomed to the drop.

A win will guarantee safety for Villa if Watford fail to win at Arsenal. "It feels better than when we went up through the playoffs".

Inevitably, Villa will have to spend a portion of the upcoming truncated off-season dealing with rumours linking Grealish with a move away from the club. I'm certainly hopeful (he will play for Villa again).

The Villains have collected seven points from their last three outings and Whelan believes they've hit form at the right time.

But Andriy Yarmolenko levelled, courtesy of a huge deflection off Grealish's boot, just a minute later to ensure a nervy finish.

The midfielder has impressed since the restart of the season following the lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and scored an 84th minute opener at West Ham before the hosts hit back nearly immediately through Andriy Yarmolenko to set up a tense final few minutes.
