Villa celebrating their late winner

Aston Villa beat Everton 3-2 in yesterday’s live game on Sky Sports. The game was one of the best games of the season so far and both teams deserve credit for this, and it was a shame that their had to be a loser.


 Aston Villa went ahead in the first minute thanks to a goal from Steve Sidwell, who smashed the ball in from 20 yards, after a neat bit of play from Luke Young and James Milner to set him up. Everton looked shocked but they carried on fighting and applying pressure on Villa searching for the equaliser. It eventually came in the 31st minute from Jolean Lescott, a tap in from 5 yards from a perfect Mikel Arteta cross.

In the second half Villa agian took the lead after a dreadful passback from Phil Jagielka was played right into the path of Ashley Young who finished impecablly past Tim Howard. Everton again piled forward in search of another equaliser and eventually got reward in the 2nd minute of stoppage time. Lescott again finding the net from close range but this time with an exceptional overhead volley.

Everton thought they had secured the point they desrerved with this goal but 20 seconds later Ashely Young turned Lescott inside out and placed a curling shot pat Tim Howard to win the game for Villa.

It truly was an exciting game and the best of the season so far. Do you agree?



  1. Young showed his class again.

    Agbonlahor and he have been wonderful for Villa this season.

    Nerdfly, I just noticed a few spelling errors in this post. ( desrerved, pat, agian to name a few). Running a spell check will make ya look more professional 🙂

  2. It isn’t really surprising that Real were ready to pay 25million for Young. Smashing player he is. Can cross, can dribble, can run and he’s not one of your primma donnas.

    He comes back and helps out the defence too.
