Aston Villa 1 vs 1 Brentford highlights 28.8

Brentford manager Thomas Frank speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "Happy with most of the performance. We started the game brilliant at a difficult place to play. We were brave, pressed high and scored and I felt we were really on top of the game. Then one miscommunication and it gave them the chance.

"In the second half I felt we started better and then it was more even in the last part of the game. I felt if there should have been a narrow winner it should have been us.

"I would like us to be even braver. My message before every game is to go for a win, play forward and attack. I just probably need to keep reinforcing it."

On Ivan Toney's first Premier League goal: "I said after the game, 'what took you so long'. He is a fantastic finisher. It was a beautiful goal. His presence on the pitch leading the team is amazing."

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "I am reasonably satisfied. We lacked a little bit of quality and fluidity in the final third and that cost us the victory.

"I am disappointed with the way we conceded but pleased with the way we came from behind.

"Some players didn’t think they were playing until we told them this morning. I phoned Ashley Young up late last night, we talked about his versatility, and he said he’d play anywhere but goalkeeper.

"There’ll [Brentford] want to prove they are here to stay. We will have socially distanced drinks in the office now. It will be good to see them all again."
