What has been said?
Aston Villa boss Dean Smith: “We weren’t at out normal pace in terms of how we play.
“Probably five games in a short period caught us up a little bit, or that’s how it looked.
“I’m not sure whether it was fatigue, it looked like we didn’t have that pace that we’ve been playing with and the tempo we’ve been playing with.
“But saying that, we’ve given poor goals away.”
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta: “If you want to talk about the decision [David Luiz’s red card], I have just seen the replay 10 times, in five different angles.
“And I am sitting here with you guys and I can’t see any contact.
“So I would like to see VAR have different angles. I am sure that they based the decision on something they’ve seen.
“But unfortunately I am sitting here expecting to see something and I am not seeing anything.”
