“There are three very important points,” the former Arsenal and Manchester United striker told the BBC

“We did some good performances but we got the result today too. I’m obviously happy to get the goal off the ground I just stayed cool and pushed it over the goalkeeper”

Villa missed a number of chances in the first half and was punished when Welbeck came in 12 Minute, he raced out of his own half and defeated goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez with a delicious finish

Konsa equalized shortly after the break as he slipped past the far post to deliver Bertrand Traore’s free-kick, and Villa seemed ready to end their comeback as they continued to besiege the Brighton gate

But they were in the 56th Stunned again, March completed a flowing move with a great first shot from 18 yards into the top corner and Martinez held onto his line

March, whose attack on Trezeguet was originally viewed by Oliver as a penalty kick, was relieved that the referee changed his mind after checking the replay of the incident on a monitor

“I had my heart in my mouth for a moment but I got a bit of the ball,” he told the BBC. “I haven’t seen it back, but sometimes you can’t avoid contacting when following through “
