Aston Villa manager Dean Smith insists he doesn’t get carried away by their brilliant start to the season after a last breath 1-0 win at Leicester

Ross Barkley’s extra strike in a shoddy game saw Villa, who escaped relegation by just one point in July, to second place and one point behind leaders Everton

He extended the only 100% record of the top five European leagues and this is the first time since 1930-1931 that they have won their first four league matches

« We are never too high winning and never too low last season fighting relegation We have to stay on an even pin

« It was a big win today, I know there were some missing players, but if you are missing from your game at any stage in the Premier League you can get your nose in blood very quickly

« It was a very close game, sometimes a disjointed game. It took a bit of quality to win the game and Ross certainly showed that at the end »

Loan Chelsea midfielder Barkley has scored his second goal in as many games, and as many as he has managed in his last 42 appearances before his move to Villa Park

Smith revealed he had doubts about his fitness ahead of the game, which is why he ran to celebrate with team doctor Ricky Shamji after scoring

« He had a little knee injury so it was a touch and go if he was going to start, » Villa boss added

« He only trained on Saturday, but he worked a lot with the doctor, so he treated him for over 90 minutes and won I certainly thanked the doc too »

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has his own injury worries as he missed striker Jamie Vardy with a calf injury, which will also rule him out of the Europa League against Zorya on Thursday, while center-back Caglar Soyuncu will likely be absent for three months with a groin injury suffered in international service with Turkey

« Jamie will miss the European game and will probably be OK for our next league game, » Foxes manager said

« This one wasn’t that bad but we couldn’t afford the risk of a tear Soyuncu is more serious, the muscle is right next to the bone so it could be out for three months

« It’s a shame He will be great miss and join the other boys (injured) »

« I don’t think we deserved this, I thought we were the best team in the first half, we overcame them really well, but we don’t quite have that level of quality, » said he added

« In the second half it got a little more basketball and it’s not the kind of game we wanted

« You are disappointed to lose this because if you can’t win it you don’t want to lose and losing it that way was disappointing »
