Game Report

Highlights

Individual errors cost Aston Villa as they fell to a home defeat against Bournemouth. Clumsy mistakes at the back allowed the visitors to race into an early two goal lead. Douglas Luiz pulled one back for a fighting Villa but it proved to be just a consolation.

Detail

Disastrous start for Aston Villa as Heaton was slow off his line and tripped Callum Wilson in the box. King sent the goalkeeper the wrong way from the penalty spot.

It went from bad to worse for the home side as new signing Luiz inexplicably tried a dummy just outside his own box. The ball went straight to Harry Wilson whose deflected shot went in off the post.

The hosts didn't surrender and were driven on by John McGinn in midfield. The Scotsman had a couple of blistering long range efforts that weren't far away whilst Jack Grealish also went close with a curler.

Luiz started to atone for a poor first half display with a wonderful goal. The Brazilian curled into the top corner from 25 yards out to bring his side back into the game.

Bournemouth were forced to hold firm in the closing stages and did a great job of it - defending resolutely at times. Steve Cook displayed that with a crucial touch to take the ball off the head of Bjorn Engels at the end.

Summary

Aston Villa played well at times but those early defensive errors cost them dearly. Bournemouth took their chances well and held on doggedly towards the end.
