Aston Villa scored more goals in the game under caretaker manager Aaron Danks than they had scored in their previous seven matches under Gerrard.

Brentford have yet to win a match away from home in the Premier League this season, and they caught Villa on a bad day.

Yet, Toney was deeply unimpressed with his teammates' performances. The Brentford striker said that the team were a 'shambles' in the game.

"Shambles, to be honest. Shambles," Toney told the BBC following the match at Villa Park.

"They fully deserved the result and it could have been more. We were like a bunch of kids out there. I don't mind losing games, but not like that. Embarrassing performance from the boys.

"We knew what they were about. We knew they had quality throughout the team. They put in a performance today and deserved to win.

"15 minutes in, 3-0 down. That cannot happen in a Premier League game. We had it against Newcastle and we bounced back so hopefully, we can do that again."

Brentford's defeat leaves them in 10th place with 14 points from 12 games.

Villa, meanwhile, moved up to 14th place after their 4-0 win, their third victory of the season.
