Postecoglou calls Martinez an “outstanding goalkeeper”

“You created the chances but is that a matter of personal but also confidence to put those chances in?

“It’s not an exact science. You have an outstanding goalkeeper in the other goal who is doing the best to keep them out, there’s some goalposts which play a part.

“You’re talking very small margins and we all know that scoring goals in the most difficult thing.

“So like I said for me the most important thing was that I was disappointed with our performance against Wolves but today we played our football and if we continue down that road we will get the rewards for how we play.”

Earlier reports suggested Emiliano Martinez was likely to leave Villa in the summer transfer window. But the Argentine international stayed back at the club.
