Video: Dean Smith on West Ham

Aston Villa Press Conference with manager Dean Smith speaking about West Ham

“They’re a good team, a well-established team with a head coach who has won the Premier League. They’re certainly a threat going forward, I watched their game with Watford, it was end to end, it could have been 5-5! If you look at the expected goals they’ll be at the top for entertainment but concede a lot as well. I guess what they’d have been working on during the international period.

But, signing Haller up front, he looks like a really good centre-forward, he’s scored a couple of good goals already and he looks a real handful. In the wide areas as well, they’ve got an awful lot of pace and trickery and creativity in midfield. It’s a tough game for us but they all are. The last game at Villa Park it was absolutely rocking and we need to get it going again.”
