VILLA NEWS:Aston Villa’s Tendency,With Emery’s Effort To Grow Subsequently…


Emery and his team won’t necessarily be looking for excuses, but it is the reality of the situation against a Spurs team with a very light schedule.

And when watching the game for Sky Sports, pundit Don Goodman thought Douglas Luiz looked absolutely exhausted towards the end of the game.But perhaps it was Villa’s extra away trip in midweek in The Netherlands that ultimately weighed heavy on the legs.

Althoughit was a damaging loss for Villa’s hopes of finishing fourth, there is still plenty of football left to play.And without Thier star man,Villa understandably struggled to hold Tottenham back, who showed little mercy in the final stages.

Emeryhad already made several changes to freshen up his Aston Villa side against Tottenham, but it was to little effect.

To that point, Douglas Luiz has started every single Premier League game for Villa this season other than one he missed through suspension.

The £15m-midfielder has now made a remarkable 40 appearances across all competitions, explaining why he did look so fatigued.

Speakingjust before the final whistle, Don Goodman thought the Brazilian had absolutely nothing left in the tank.

He simply said: “He’s almost out on his feet, Douglas Luiz. Physically, he looks empty.”

And as mentioned before, Aston Villa’s season is far from over despite this Tottenham defeat.

And with the fixture schedule showing no sign of slowing down, with two games still to go before the international break, it will be interesting to see how Emery manages things.

The Spaniard has faced many tests already this season owing to terrible luck with injuries, but it seems he now has a fresh conundrum.

And away from today’s game, one former England international has recently said he regretted not joining Aston Villa sooner.
