Home   /   Brazilian brilliance boosts Aston Villa 

Aston Villas domination in the first half was rewarded when in the 30th minute Douglas Luiz scored a deflected shot from the outside of the box, Areola should’ve done better as he spilled it in. 

It was Douglas Luiz’s fifth consecutive goal at Villa Park which breaks the all-time record. 

This was met with a sense of relief around the ground as Ollie Watkins missed a big chance 15 minutes earlier following good play from Moussa Diaby. 

After the goal West Ham stepped up a gear as they started to play with a greater urgency, which continued until the end of the first half. Despite this the score remained one-nil. 

Only a few minutes after the restart, Aguerd gave away a silly penalty on Konsa which was calmly converted by Luiz. 

However, a couple of minutes later Jarrod Bowen set his mark on the game with a heavily deflected effort that found the left side of the net. 

Villa survived a West Ham flurry which included lots of set-pieces and in the 74th minute, Watkins scored following a brilliant pass from John McGinn with some nice footwork on show. 

Douglas Luiz put in a great performance at both sides of the pitch as he was consistently disrupting play and influencing Villas attack. 

Leon Bailey came onto the pitch to seal the deal with some trickery and a neat finish to make it four-one. 

It’s a win that Villa should be very proud of given their recent record against the Hammers.
