Slaven Bilic praised his team’s professionalism as we recorded yet another Boleyn victory.
The manager declared that after a great start Villa controlled the game until a crazy incident when Ayew threw elbow into the face of Aaron Cresswell and was red carded .
And Bilic said: “I wouldn’t say the red card decided the match but it obviously affected it particularly in the second half when we were very professional and patient.
“We didn’t rush the final ball but tried to find the solution and eventually broke them down but even then we didn’t lose our composure and shape.
“It was a very good goal from Michail Antonio and after that we controlled the game and played good football. However, you are always nervous until the second goal but when we got it we deserved it.”
