Game Report

Highlights

Aston Villa are off the mark in the Premier League after a hard fought victory over Everton. The Toffees wasted numerous chances to cancel out Wesley Moraes' opener before Anwar El Ghazi killed the game in stoppage-time.

Detail

The visitors were on top in the opening stages. There was plenty of neat passing from Everton but they lacked penetration.

Aston Villa took the lead against the run of play. The away defence was static as Jota Peleteiro slipped a great through-ball into the path of Wesley who finished it off.

The Toffees were uncharacteristically sloppy at the back. Yerry Mina had to make a desperate recovery tackle on Wesley after giving the ball away to Jota.

Marco Silva's first substitution was to bring on Alex Iwobi and he made a real impact. The former Arsenal man had a shot blocked in front of goal and also struck the post with a low effort.

Moise Kean and Theo Walcott also came off the bench for the visitors - adding more pace to their forward line. All three substitutes combined to set up a glorious chance which Walcott wasted with the goal gaping.

Aston Villa managed to exploit the spaces that Everton were leaving as they pushed for an equaliser. El Ghazi took his goal brilliantly from John McGinn's pass.

Summary

Relief for Aston Villa to get points on the board for the first time this season. Everton had more than enough possession and chances to get something from the game but were poor in the final third.
