As soon as Steven Gerrard leaves, he wins by four points…
Aston Villa won the game by four points shortly after Steven Gerrard left.
Aston Villa beat Brentford 4-0 in the 13th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season at Villa Park in Birmingham on the 22nd. With three points, Villa moved up to 14th place in the league.
It was the first victory in a long time. Villa had no victory for a month after winning 1-0 against Southampton on the 17th of last month. The match between Leeds United and Nottingham Forest was tied, and they were beaten 0–2 and 0–3 respectively against Chelsea and Fulham.
The coach was also replaced due to poor performance. Villa reported on the club’s website shortly after the defeat against Fulham on the 21st that manager Gerrard will leave the team. The manager may have been replaced and the atmosphere inside the team may have become chaotic, but he won a great victory in the game held in two days.
It was also the first multi-goal victory of the season. Villa has not scored more than three goals since the opening of this season. The four-point victory has resolved his resentment. Leon Bailey scored the first goal two minutes into the first half, and Danny Ings scored an additional goal five minutes later. Ince added a goal in the 14th minute, bringing the team a victory early on. Villa, who finished 3-0 in the first half, continued their offensive in the second half, and Ollie Watkins scored the team’s fourth goal to end the game 4-0.
After the match, Villa fans pointed to manager Gerrard as the cause of the team’s slump so far. This is because the players flew in the game as soon as manager Gerrard left, and the scoring ability, which was pointed out as a problem, seemed to have improved. Some fans blamed Gerrard for his leadership.
Britain’s “Daily Mail” released the reactions shown by villa fans on SNS after the match. Fans said, “Villa made a fool of Gerrard. “It’s 3-0 in 15 minutes,” he said, adding, “This is proof that Gerrard should never take on EPL teams again,” and “I’m sorry, but Gerrard was the problem.”
Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino, who led Tottenham Hotspur in the past, is currently being mentioned as a candidate for Villa’s next coach.
