Aston Villa in danger of losing record-breaking sensation Louie Barry, Unai Emery doesn’t need him
Aston Villa have enjoyed a superb season so far under Unai Emery, with the manager working wonders at the Midlands club.
They currently sit fifth in the Premier League table, just two points behind leaders and defending champions Manchester City.
That is thanks to six wins from their nine matches so far, the latest of which was a 4-1 rout at home to West Ham on Sunday (22 October).
And one key man from that stunning victory was unsurprisingly striker Ollie Watkins, who scored a goal and assist, becoming the first player to hit five goals and five assists in Europe’s big five leagues this season [Squawka, 22 October].
But he wasn’t the only Villa striker to shine at the weekend, with on-loan sensation Louie Barry netting a brace for League Two club Stockport County.
The 20-year-old scored his eighth and ninth league goals of the season in a 3-2 win against Grimbsy Town on Saturday (21 October).
