In a press conference, Dean Smith has shown lots of confidence towards his Aston Villa side, warning Leeds United that Villa are more than capable of scoring goals against any Championship rivals, especially with the advantage of the home crowd.
Dean Smith was quoted saying: ‘We believe we can beat them’ ahead of the clash of two highly in form sides.
Leeds United are the favourites to win it following their 5 match win spree,the first time this has happened at this level since 87/88. Villa fell short of a victory in their last match against Stoke, drawing 2-2, with Dean Smith admitting that Villa were not at their best.
The warning came when Dean Smith said that there’s a ‘guarantee’ that Villa will score goals in the upcoming match, boasting that ‘It doesn’t matter who we play against – Stoke, Leeds, West Brom, we will score.’
