But Smith expects more from his side after they were forced to battle back from a goal down at Villa Park on Saturday.

It was a tricky first half for the Villans, as their visitors sat in deep to frustrate them in a 5-4-1 formation without the ball and the job became more hard when Glenn Whelan's mistake allowed Dwight Gayle to open the scoring.

"I don't think their [West Brom] supporters will accept them sitting behind the ball".

Gayle, on loan from Newcastle, scored his 24th goal of the season to put the visitors ahead in the first half but was then shown a second yellow card late on. With the win on Saturday, Villa snapped a four match winless streak against West Brom getting their first win since a FA Cup clash in March 2015.

Klopp: Liverpool must manage 'emotional and mental effects' of Champions League comeback
Liverpool's point total is the third-best in Premier League history behind City this year and their 100-point side last year. City got the points they have because we were there. "We were really good until 1-0, what happened then was clear".

If Aston Villa are to win promotion back into the Premier League this season, then you can nearly guarantee that Abraham will play a crucial role in the success of the Villans this year.

"We'll be going for the win (on Tuesday)".

Dwight Gayle was sent off late into first-leg, and it'll certainly mean that the Villa defence will be in for a quieter game in the second-leg, with Jay Rodriguez the only recognised striker available for the Baggies.

Villa went behind when Gayle drilled in from the edge of the area in the 16th minute after Glenn Whelan's error gave him a clear run through. "To my mind, every time the ball went out he had an intent of walking towards to the ball", he said. Hourihane is that player as he gives you a goal threat and can create as well. Maybe tactically we have to have a different approach. "We have a great side and we will just have to find a way to beat them".
