Unai Emery’s Aston Villa side came from behind to beat Brighton in the Premier League. This was a much-needed victory for Villa and their chances of staying in the top flight are now more realistic. In the opening half, Villa dominated the game and carried a more direct attacking threat than their opponents. The first goal came from a header by Buendia which looped back off the post. Brighton tried to counter but were frustrated and eventually conceded a goal.
Unai Emery’s first game in charge of Aston Villa
Unai Emery’s first game as manager of Aston Villa has been a success, with a 2-1 victory over Brighton. After an unconvincing start, the team responded well to a poor start with a stout 2-1 victory. Villa were without a win on the road this season until the introduction of Emery, who played for Spanish side Villarreal before joining Aston Villa.

Aston Villa are looking to build on their recent success, with the win at Brighton their second Premier League win this season. They have won both of their matches under new manager Unai Emery, gaining three points in their last outing against Manchester United. Brighton had beaten Aston Villa three times, but Emery’s side came from behind on Sunday to win 2-1 at Villa Park.
Danny Ings, who has four goals in as many games, has helped Villa to victory. The midfielder scored twice against Brighton. Brighton took the lead in the 49th minute through Alexis Mac Allister, who took the ball off of Douglas Luiz and slotted home after a heavy pass from Emiliano Martinez. The goal was the fastest ever scored in the Premier League. However, Villa were able to hold on to their lead and limit Brighton to just two shots in the first half.
His time at Arsenal
Unai Emery is a coach who has struggled to establish himself in London, despite his success at Valencia and Villarreal. A recent interview with The Athletic reveals that the Spaniard compared the English game to Spain, and said that he found it difficult to adapt to the changing atmosphere.

Emery was appointed to the job as manager in November 2018 and has managed Arsenal for 16 months. However, his tenure has been marred by criticism. After a poor run of form, he was sacked on 29 November. He had gone on a seven-game losing streak, and his final game was a 2-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League. His dismissal came after the team failed to improve and Emery was replaced by Freddie Ljungberg and Mikel Arteta.
Emery’s style is quite bizarre, and is based on possession. Granit Xhaka has above-average passing ability and can be an asset to a possession team, but he lacks defensive intelligence and mobility. It is also crucial for an attacking team to have players who are capable of controlling the game without the ball.
His training sessions at Carrington Road
Unai Emery’s training sessions at Carrington Park were extremely high-energy. He screamed and punched the air at the Villa players while high-fiving the backroom staff whenever they scored. Emery later said it was his dream day, as he had only dreamed of winning the game the night before. Emery’s tactics are based around possession football, and he wants to play it in a direct manner. The players were given time in possession and were told to draw space for team-mates further upfield.
Manchester United are currently preparing for their Carabao Cup match against Aston Villa. After a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa in the Premier League last weekend, the Red Devils are looking to get back at the Villa. Leon Bailey, Lucas Digne and Jacob Ramsey scored the goals against the Magpies and will be keen to get revenge on their opponents.
