Goals by Jack Grealish, Conor Hurryhan, and Tyrone Mings against Fulham contributed to their second successive victory in the team’s first two Premier League matches for the first time since 1999.
“Football is a difficult game, and you have to find a balance between attack and defense, at the moment we have this balance,” Smith said in comments, most notably his club’s website.
“We scored wonderful goals against Follum, but what made me happiest about this match was the desire to keep the ball out of our net,” he added.
“It is about maintaining this balance between defense and attack. If we can do that, this will give us a great chance to win the matches,” he added.
The match saw Aboubacar Camara score a goal for Fulam in the 56th minute, but the video technology caused him to cancel due to the intervention of Alexander Mitrovic and impeded his Aston Villa defender during the attack.
Mahmoud Hassan “Trezeguet” participated in the starting lineup of his team, and came out in the 83rd minute, replacing Bertrand Traore.
Ahmed Al-Mohammadi sat on the bench seats of Aston Villa.
With that result, Aston Villas balance reached six points, ranking them fourth in the table and having a postponed match against Manchester City.
Fulam is last with no point.
