Aston Villa boss Gerrard: We can't get carried away after win at Crystal Palace

Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard says they must stay grounded after their 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.

John McGinn and Matt Targett scored in the win.

Gerrard said: "We can't get carried away. It has been a positive couple of weeks. The players have been fantastic in their application. We had to dig in at times today but we managed to get over the line which is nice.

"There was great work before we came in. Dean Smith had done an impressive job before and the performances in the five games before probably didn't warrant five defeats. We've had to put a lot of information across in a short of period of time and there are still little tweaks to make.

"We have got an impressive set-piece specialist at Aston Villa and his job is to identify weaknesses in the opposition side. The players deserve all the credit for going and implementing that goal.

"I have been lucky and blessed enough to play at a high-level. i've wanted to grow and take information with me, in terms of shape and how you look out of possession. Hopefully in time people will see that identity and philosophy come across. It is a real big step to take six points from six."
