MetiNews.Com - Aston Villa lost for the third home match in succession as Brighton were allowed to score an opening goal that surprised Arsenal great Ian Wright
Breaking News ! Ian Wright has criticised Aston Villa’s defending in the build up to Danny Welbeck’s opening goal yesterday. The former Manchester United striker raced clear of the whole Villa defence to give Brighton the first of their two goals in Saturday’s controversial 2-1 victory. And Wright pointed to a ‘lack of organisation’ as Welbeck had an unopposed run on Emiliano Martinez’s goal - he did, though concede that Villa were unlucky not to take something from the game.

It just looked too simple.” Wright also gave his verdict on the late penalty incident which saw Michael Oliver award the hosts a spot-kick as Solly March made contact with Trezeguet.

Dean Smith was unhappy with that and Wright said: “We’re now dealing in such small margins and he did touch the ball. He got the ball first but what can I say?

" I think anywhere else on the pitch it's a foul," Smith said. "VAR asked the referee to go upstairs and overturns it so there's nothing we can do. "It's frustrating. I'm not sure any of us know what are penalties and what aren't at the moment. "I was more frustrated at the fact we had some big chances today and didn't take them.
