According to Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard his side’s scrappy win over Southampton at the park of Villa was a “big victory”.

Villa not only secured second premier league which is the win of the season

According to Gerrard:  "It wasn't pretty or stylish but, with where we were in the league, we knew we had to do it in a pragmatic way," 

"I'm really proud of the boys' effort, application and commitment. We played better than we did last time''.

 In football, you have to grind and fight and be committed and we worked hard today.”

"We will get better in terms of style and possession and that will come but tonight was about the points."

He added: "We had to back up our performance against Manchester City and there were a lot of eyes on us from the TV but we did it.”

"I've tried to fight and move up this table. We have accepted a lot of criticism and it's about reacting and that is what we have done tonight."

Villa made almost all the running in a game frantically short on quality level

According to the report of BBC: “Ramsey broke the deadlock four minutes before the break after Southampton keeper Gavin Bazunu turned Ollie Watkins' header on to the bar.”
