Brian Little has advice for Aston Villa on how to react to Everton defeat

RĂ©mi Garde

Aston Villa lost 4-0 to Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Brian Little explained on BBC WM 95.6 what Aston Villa should do following their heavy defeat to Everton away from home on Saturday afternoon.

Villa suffered a comprehensive 4-0 loss to Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League.

“Villa will have to have a good look at their performance, see what individual players could have done better and make sure they are no worse off than they were before the game,” said former Villa striker and manager Little.

“The clear message for Remi Garde today will be that Villa have been second best, there is no doubt about that and there is a huge amount of work for Garde to do,” added the 61-year-old.

Villa have struggled defensively all season, and Remi Garde’s side once again slipped up at the back on Saturday.

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 loss 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.
