Statement by Roy Hodgson (Watford Coach)

"We’re very fortunate here because we have a full-sized dome. It’s not something we use all of the time, some players are wary of playing on an artificial surface but it is certainly going to give us a chance to do some work with them and walk through some of the work we would have done on the field. As far as we’re concerned, it hasn’t particularly affected us".

"It’s easy to stay calm if you appreciate what the players are trying to do. They might not be playing as well as you’d like, or well at all, but as long as you can feel that they are on the same page as you and want to do as well as you do, I think that becomes easier".

"What we’re talking about in terms of calmness is that you’re not getting battered by outside wind and noise, and that you keep your path that you can control and have an influence on. It is a much calmer and more tranquil environment, where you concentrate on what matters, how we’re going to become a better team, how we’re going to defend better and how we’re going to attack better. The outside noise can affect your calmness".

"What we can do is continue working, there are a lot of games left to play for and a lot of points up for grabs, and all we can do is make certain every time we go out onto the field of play to face an opponent that we’ve prepared the team in the best way we can, and they’re ready for the challenge".

Statements by Steven Gerrard (Aston Villa coach)

"I told the starting XI last week that they leave me vulnerable when players who were not picked have every right to knock on my door and ask why."

"I have to get the balance right in terms of changes. There will be no radical changes because I don't want to be emotional and I have to take into account what people have given me in the last 12 or 13 games and in the three months. We will make changes, the eleven will be different, but I also want to give people the opportunity to correct a mistake from last week."

"I managed to catch Ollie and we had a good, positive chat. It's very important to me when players are not at their best, they don't overthink it or worry too much. It's my job to support them and help them get back to where they want to be. He's a fantastic player and a great talent. Not so long ago, people were saying he should be back in the England team because he was scoring goals and looked a threat."

Watford has not been able to get back on track this season, even with the change of coaching staff. It has been 11 games since the last time they got three points and that streak keeps them in the relegation zone, so they urgently need to win again to aspire to get out of the relegation zone.

9:40 AM3 months ago

Aston Villa

Aston Villa has entered a small rut of negative results and all the good start that Steven Gerrard had had at the helm of the team has been tarnished by results like the defeat against Newcastle in the most recent matchday, so it is necessary for the team to get the victory that will serve as a turning point for the rest of the season.
