The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising of LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Chris Hughton, Rachel Yankey, Les Ferdinand, Clare Tomlinson, Dave Bassett, and Barry Fry has determined that the Utilita Performance of the Week Award should go to Aston Villa for their performance against Manchester City on Wednesday the 6th of December.
Aston Villa manager, Unai Emery, will receive the Utilita Performance of the Week trophy.
Leon Bailey’s second-half strike secured a deserved 1-0 victory over Manchester City as outstanding Aston Villa equalled a club-record 14 successive home league wins in style.
Bailey received the ball and surged towards goal before producing a piece of skill to cut inside and see his shot deflect off the foot of Ruben Dias and beat Ederson, sending a vociferous Villa Park into raptures.
The 74th-minute winner capped a superb, high-tempo display from Unai Emery’s dominant side which was full of energy, determination, and quality, with the hosts enjoying 22 attempts at goal compared to City’s two.
