Blackburn 2 Aston Villa 1: Don´t mention formation

Blackburn were reduced to 10 men with 20 minutes to go at 1-1 and we failed to take advantage. Blackburn however didn´t give up and they won by scoring a penalty with a few minutes to go.

Bottom line, we were not good enough today. We played our best players in the formation picked and it wasn´t enough.

We will be doing a lot more tomorrow with post-mortem but for now, this is a defeat, our second this season and maybe not coincidentally, the second time we played 442.

Are we seeing a trend Mr O´Neill?
