According to Aston Villa goalkeeper, Tom Heaton, his teammates lack the experience to be playing in the English Premier League.

Recently promoted club Aston Villa didn’t have a good welcome back to the English Premier League as they were defeated 3-1 by Tottenham Hotspur.

And according to its goalkeeper, Tom Heaton, his teammates do not possess Premier League experience.

“I think there is a lot of hunger here,” Heaton said to The Daily Star.

“I know there is not a lot of Premier League experience.”

“I am really positive for the rest of the season,” he added.

“There were moments in Saturday’s game which I am sure we will learn from, key moments and in the Premier League those details count.”

Heaton commented: “But in terms of ability, the hunger to play at this level, kick on and keep this club in the Premier League and moving up the table, it has been impressive.”

“I am really positive for the rest of the season.”

“Having been at Burnley for so long, I think it is well-known in football how good things are there,” he said.

“The dressing room was the unique selling point and the reason the team was always greater than the sum of its parts.”

The goalkeeper concluded: “I wouldn’t say I came here with trepidation, just a sense of the unknown.”

“Since setting foot in the building, I have loved every minute so far.”
