McGrath: Youngsters scared to play at Villa Park

Aston Villa legend Paul McGrath fears the club's young team are freezing at Villa Park.

Villa have lost in the Cup and League at home in the past week.

"It's only at home that they're having problems," McGrath told talkSPORT. "Being young, they're a little bit frightened to play at home.

"Once they start making mistakes or a goal goes in, the crowd gets on their back. For young players in particular, your game can go to pieces [when that happens]. Some players do prefer to play away from home."
