Leon Bailey scores Aston Villa's third goal
Leon Bailey scores Aston Villa's third goal

Everton's unbeaten streak in the Premier League came to an end, with Aston Villa running out 3-0 victors at Villa Park.

Matty Cash gave the hosts the lead just after the hour mark, with his first Premier League goal since joining the Villans in 2020 before Lucas Digne diverted a Leon Bailey corner into his own net.

Bailey then sealed the win for Dean Smith's side after breaking in behind the Toffees' defence and rifling home on the half-volley.

The result sees the visitors drop out of the Champions League spots, whilst Villa move into the top half of the table.

Smith was thrilled with his side's performance. He said: "We was the better team in the first half but didn't create as many clear-cut chances as I would have liked.

"I was really pleased with the amount of goals that we scored. The first one was great build-up play, we passed it from the goalkeeper right to the other end.

"This stadium is a special stadium and when it's rocking under the floodlights there's no better place."

Did you know?

Aston Villa are unbeaten in their last five Premier League home games (W3 D2), their longest run without defeat at Villa Park in the top-flight since January 2015.

Everton have conceded 10 goals in their last four Premier League away games, as many as they had in their previous 14 on the road in the competition.

Villa earned their biggest win over Everton in all competitions since December 2005.

This was Villa’s biggest Premier League victory in a match that was goalless at half-time since they beat Blackburn 4-1 in February 2011.

Bailey has been involved in seven goals in his last seven top-flight appearances (four goals, three assists). He became the second Aston Villa player to be subbed on, score, and then be subbed off in a Premier League match, after Julian Joachim vs Derby in September 2000.

Digne has scored three own goals in the Premier League — no player has netted more in the competition since he joined Everton ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

Cash scored his first Premier League goal for Villa, in what was his 33rd appearance in the competition. The full-back had three shots today, more than any other player in the match.
