Aston Villa sack Dean Smith following five Premier League defeats in a row


Aston Villa have parted company with Dean Smith after suffering an extremely poor start to the Premier League season. With just 10 points from their first 11 games and five defeats in a row in the Premier League, the club announced on Sunday afternoon that they had parted with Smith after three years of service.

In what is Villa’s third consecutive Premier League season, Smith has made an awful start despite spending close to £100million on Danny Ings, Emiliano Buendia and Leon Bailey.

The club finished 17th on their return to the Premier League after a three-year hiatus in 2019-20, staying up by just one point ahead of Bournemouth.

The following season marked a huge upturn in form with Villa occupying the top-half for most of the season, before slipping to 11th in the dying embers.

The emergence of Ollie Watkins, Tyrone Mings, John McGinn and especially Jack Grealish made Villa a very fashionable outfit, with many finding them fun to watch.
