“He works hard every day in practice with his teammates,” the Villa manager stated. “His dedication to the team is incredible, and we truly need his goals like today.

“I believe his first goal is to attempt to improve his performance for the team by scoring and assisting us. We need to think like this.

“Watkins has a very high level of daily commitment. His daily goal is to get better. He desires employment and team support.

“We are thrilled for him when he scores because he always deserves to score. He is attempting to communicate his goal and target to the squad. First comes winning, then comes scoring. He scored, and we won today. It’s excellent for the group.
