Nobody was putting pressure on Ollie Watkins to score goals – Dean Smith

Included in the 25-year-old's haul was a sensational hat-trick in the 7-2 win against Liverpool and a double at Arsenal, but his purple patch was followed by a frustrating two-and-a-half-month period without a goal. “All goalscorers and centre-forwards will tell you they're not that worried (about not scoring), but really they just want to score goals and Ollie is the same,” Smith said ahead of Villa's trip to Burnley on Wednesday evening. Villa snapped a three-match losing run to put more pressure on Newcastle head coach Steve Bruce, but they travel to Turf Moor to face opponents high on confidence after bringing Liverpool's long unbeaten home run to an end.
