Just In:Emmanuel Petit draws ‘unreasonable analogy’ following Aston Villa’s loss of points in…

The defeat to Manchester City in midweek was expected, especially when so many starting players were missing through injury, suspension and illness.
However, allowing four goals and then failing to secure a win at home against Brentford is unacceptable. Ollie Watkins expressed his frustration with the situation. Aston Villa squandered a 2-0 lead against a struggling team, leaving no room for excuses. Emmanuel Petit criticized the team’s performance, stating that they ‘lost control’ during the match against the Bees, as he mentioned on MatchDay Extra on Premier League Productions (06/04/24 at 8:40 pm).
The legendary midfielder also proceeded to compare this Aston Villa team to Arsenal last season when they crumbled in the Premier League title race.

Arsenal had a much bigger lead than the one Villa have had in recent weeks, but the London club still faltered when it mattered most.

Petit feels he is seeing the same signs with Emery’s side now because they are now feeling the pressure on their shoulders, as they bid to secure fourth spot in the Premier League table.
