: “The score could have been more without Fraser Forster. It could have had a fifth or sixth goal, we deserved to keep a clean sheet. “Gerrard said after the game.

“We were very united today, working hard and scored four goals that were fantastic. They made it difficult for us. What really pleased me was the fact that we were in control of the game.”

Coutinho started off the move that led to Ollie Watkins’ superbly-taken opener before laying it on a plate for fellow Brazilian Douglas Luiz following a stunning outside-of-the-boot pass from Callum Chambers.

The former Liverpool man then grabbed a goal of his own. Before playing in Matty Cash. Whose precise cut-back was then finished off by Danny Ings for Villa’s fourth. The ufabet report

The triumph saw the Midlanders claim back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time since November and subsequently end the Saints’ six-match unbeaten run.

“We have Phil [Coutinho] back fit and in a good situation. He returned to the same form he was playing for Liverpool today. As for the other players that have been elevated by his presence, it’s about the players running behind him, Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings who can’t touch them at some point. too”

“When Phil calls back Filling in his football game, He’s a world-class player

. I think we owe it to the fans today. Our poor performance against Watford is something we are responsible for.”
