  • GOOOAAALLLL!!! Villa strike first!!!! It's a fantastic finish from Watkins, who takes a pass from Ings, turns Stephens brilliantly, and fires the ball beyond Forster's grasp into the back of the net! An excellent goal by the hosts, and they're 1-0 up with barely nine minutes gone!

  • GOOOAAALLL!!! Villa have a second!!! After Southampton repel another Villa attack, Chambers clips the ball over the top into Coutinho's path. With the away defence nowhere, he tees up Luiz to his right, and he taps the ball beyond Forster to make it 2-0! Villa are right on top here!

  • GOOOAAAALLLL!!!! The Villains have three!!! After a Luiz shot from the free-kick is blocked, Ings beats two before finding Coutinho. He feigns to shoot on his left, taking three defenders out of the equation, before firing the ball home with a right-footed drive that puts Villa 3-0 up! Game, set and match? Probably!

  • GOOOOAAALLL!!!! IT'S FOUR!!! Forward come Villa again through Cash, who continues his run before cutting the ball back to Ings. He shoots first time, placing the ball into the far corner to put Villa 4-0 up over his former employers! The hosts are running riot here!
