‘Everyone at Aston Villa wishes Trez a full and speedy recovery.’

When asked about the problem after the match at Anfield, Villa boss Dean Smith said: ‘He tried to carry on but, unfortunately, didn’t feel great so had to come off and was naturally upset and worried at what extent the injury is but only time will tell us.’
