Danny Mills comments on Aston Villa’s defending against Everton

Aston Villa

Aston Villa suffered a 4-0 defeat to Everton away from home in the Premier League today.

Former Leeds United defender Danny Mills has criticised the way Aston Villa defended against Everton today on BBC Final Score.

Villa suffered a comprehensive 4-0 defeat to Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the Premier League today.

"I cannot wait for Martin Keown to destroy Aston Villa's defending on Match of the day this evening,” said Mills towards the end of the first half. “It is comical - the ball bounced three times in the penalty area!”

"It's all going wrong for Aston Villa,” added the former Leeds right-back in the second half. “The new manager came in and momentarily stopped the rot, but I am sure Martin Keown will pull that Villa defence apart on Match of the Day tonight. Some of their defending has been abysmal."

Villa have struggled defensively all season, and it seems that new manager Remi Garde is struggling to find a solution.

Everton are a stronger team than Villa and have better attacking players, but the way the Villans conceded the goals left much to be desired.

The result means that Villa remain in real danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.

The Villans are at the foot of the Premier League table at the moment with just five points from 13 matches, five points behind 17th-place Newcastle United.

Villa will take on promoted side Watford at Villa Park in the Premier League next weekend.
