Aston Villa boss Smith ready to back Buendia for Arsenal clash

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith is adamant Emi Buendia will build on his performance in defeat to Wolves.

The Argentine is likely to keep his place when Villa travel to Arsenal on Friday.

Smith took encouragement from his performance against Wolves explaining: “In the first half his pressing was really good as well and he worked really hard without the ball.

“He was a little bit loose at times with the ball but he will grow into it and is getting better and better.

"He will be a top player for us."
