ANWAR El Ghazi insists Villa cannot let pressure get to them after only two Premier League games.
Despite two encouraging displays. Dean Snith’s side have lost both of their opening top flight games this season to Tottenham and Bournemouth.
And while it is far from an ideal start, El Ghazi says Villa have to learn from their mistakes.
Villa play host to Everton on Friday night in another tough fixture.
But El Ghazi says the team have been boosted by the way they have played in both of their matches so far – knowing it will come right for them soon.
El Ghazi told reporters: “Friday is a new chance. We have to be positive.
“Nothing has happened yet. We’ve played just two games.
“There’s not a lot of pressure yet, we just know we need the points to show what Aston Villa are.”
Villa paid the price for conceding two early goals against Bournemouth – as opposed to two late ones at Spurs.
El Ghazi added: “It was a harsh lesson. We’re playing in the Premier League now not the Championship.
‘Every mistake we make will become a big one.
“That’s what the coach said. We need to be clever and focused for 90 minutes long. We’re in the hardest league in the world now. We can’t be sloppy. We can’t pass badly. We have to be more clever in all areas of the pitch.”
