Aston Villa attacker Leon Bailey was delighted with his brace in their 3-0 defeat of Everton.

Villa eventually won a tight game 3-0.

Bailey said: "It means so much to me, to accomplish what I did in the 21 minutes. My family was here and the fans chanting my name when I came on. It is such an amazing feeling. I feel I have welcomed myself here as a Villa player.

"My son is here, he is a great part of my life and had motivated me. My girlfriend has been a backbone for me and my brother has been supportive. I felt comfortable and I felt I needed to do it for them and the fans.

"In the moment I just said I am going to smash the ball. It was bouncing, I took the time to be relaxed, focused to make sure I hit it properly.

"The injury was from the shot, I hit it too hard and started feeling stiff in my quad. I don't think it was anything too serious but didn't want to risk it."
