Aston Villa boss Unai Emery was delighted with their 3-0 win against Bournemouth.
Goals from Douglas Luiz, Jacob Ramsey and Emiliano Buendía secured a 3-0 Premier League win, extending the team’s unbeaten run to four matches.
Producing a big performance in front of the home fans was clearly important to head coach Emery.
“First is to get the clean sheet and second is to win through the clean sheet, both are very important,” he said.
“Before the match against Crystal Palace, we conceded eight goals in two matches here, which was completely upsetting for us.
“We reacted very well. The last two matches, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth, we achieved clean sheets and won.
“We played two very good matches and did it in a fantastic way.”
A controlled display from the players in claret and blue delivered three points, with Villa racking up 20 shots during the 90 minutes.
Bournemouth threatened on occasion but failed to stop Emi Martínez picking up an eighth clean sheet of the campaign.
Emery said: “We started very well in the first 20, 25 minutes but after our goal, they reacted and started playing, trying to push up and created some chances.
“We have to keep thinking about how we can react during the match. After the first half, in the dressing room, we were speaking about it and in the second half our reaction was very good.
“We started controlling the game again like we did in the beginning. At the end of the match, they had some chances with Solanke because they attacked us with long balls.
“They did it well but they didn’t score. At the end, we deserved to win and to score a second and third goal and to share it with our supporters.”
