Danny Ings was delighted to prove Aston Villa’s matchwinner at Brighton on Sunday.
Ings struck to deliver a 2-1 win at Falmer stadium.
He said, “As a striker it’s always nice to score goals and help the team. The team deserve all the credit today, to go down so early in the game, we showed a lot of resilience.
“We created a lot of chances, on another day we would have scored more goals. We were brilliant in how we defended and did well going forward. We implemented the manager’s plans well.”
On manager Unai Emery, he added: “Every manager is different with their game plans. As a player, it’s great because you now you’re going to improve as a player.
“We have something to build on now. This was the perfect way to finish. We knew how tough it was going to be. To come here and get the win was massive for us.”
