John Terry has stated on Instagram that Aston Villa’s 5-1 win at Norwich City was ‘coming’ as he praised the players for their ‘great performance’.
Dean Smith’s side went into the match without a Premier League win since August, but on Saturday afternoon, they well and truly dispatched Daniel Farke’s Norwich.
In recent weeks, Villa had been throwing away numerous leads – at Arsenal, and last week against Burnley, which was no doubt leaving the fans frustrated.
But the players didn’t allow any of that to get to their head as they put in an outstanding display at Carrow Road to walk away with a much-needed three points.
This was Terry’s message from his personal Instagram account straight after the game:
The international break has perhaps come at the wrong time for Villa now because the players would have wanted to carry on their momentum into next week, but it isn’t to be.
Either way, it has still given the players, fans and coaching staff a much-needed boost that the work they have been doing recently has been positive.
There have been times when Villa’s performances haven’t really matched their performances – eight points dropped from winning positions is proof of that.
But now they have something to cheer about and when they take on Brighton after the international break, they will want to start adding some consistency to their game.
