Villa’s season goes from bad to worse after exiting the League Cup and suffering their 9th defeat in 10.

Villa started brightly and were probably unlucky to not to be ahead at half time with good chances falling to Gestede and Bacuna going close with headed chances. The difference as is so often has been this season is that Southampton took their chance and Villa did not.

On the whole it was a spirited performance and once again Ayew looked the part and contributed towards Villa last minute goal by winning the penalty that Sinclair buried.

Tottenham next, one I am sure Sherwood would have liked to be around for but that’s not to be. Really hope the fans get behind the club, if ever the support was needed now is the time.
