Over the course of the 90 minutes at Villa Park on Sunday, hosts Villa had 56% of the possession, took 19 shots of which 10 were on target, and earned 11 corners, according to BBC Sport.
Visitors Southampton had 44% of the possession, took nine shots of which four were on target, and earned one corner, according to BBC Sport.
True, Villa have lost their past two Premier League matches, but that is no reason to panic.
Leeds have been superb this season and held Manchester City to a draw and pushed Liverpool hard.
Southampton have a good team who recently beat Everton 2-0 at home and drew with Chelsea away from home at Stamford Bridge in the league.
Villa will return to action this coming Sunday when they take on Arsenal away from home at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League.
The Gunners have just beaten Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford in the league, and Mikel Arteta’s side will be favourites against the Villans.
However, Villa fans should stay positive, especially as they have some superb attacking players such as Ollie Watkins, Ross Barkley and Jack Grealish.
