  • Buendia cuts inside looking to create an opportunity, before he's tugged from behind and brought down by Cucurella. The Spanish wing-back receives the game's first booking as a result.

  • GOOOOOOOOAALLLLLLLL!!!!!!!! WHAT. A. FINISH!!!!!!!!!!! Villa fly forward on the break once again, and Young finds Watkins on the run. He cuts inside Duffy, and Bissouma, and unleashes a firecracker of a shot right into the top corner!!!! What a goal, and potentially what a start to Steven Gerrard's tenure in charge at Villa Park!!!!

  • GOOOALLLL!!!! IT'S TWOOOOO!!!!!! Utter chaos in the Brighton box at the corner sees a McGinn cross back in from the byline dealt with by Webster. His sideward clearance only falls to Mings though, who smashes a fantastic first-time finish into the top corner to double Villa's lead and seal the three points here!!! What a finish to this game!!!

    89'
  • Mac Allister cuts inside and has two shots blocked, but on the second his shooting leg follows through and hits Young in the knee. He's booked for the incident, and it's clear to tell how frustrated Brighton are with how this game has turned against them.

  • Konsa is also booked for his part in the argument, but Villa won't care as they close in on three all-important points.
