Aston Villa boss Dean Smith wants a team effort ahead of Leicester City clash

​Aston Villa manager Dean Smith has insisted that his charges should work as a team ahead of their clash against Leicester City on Monday night, The National reported.

The Villans meet The Foxes at King Power Stadium in hopes of a positive result that will move them from the relegation zone; this comes after three straight defeats in the Premier League as well as losing to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.

Smith insisted that his squad need to go above and beyond as a team if they are to succeed and remain in the Premier League - a team effort in essence.

He said: "Jack [Grealish] and Tyrone [Mings] have done really well, but the likes of Ally Samatta, who's been a really bright spark for us, can be really important from now until the end of the season.

"John McGinn is coming back and there will be a lot of pressure put on him because of his form before the injury.

"I thought Marvelous Nakamba was excellent against Manchester City, and if we've got these sort of players in form and performing well, we've got a good chance."
