Video: Aston Villa goal seals victory to end two incredible statistics

Posted by

Aston Villa looked well worth their three points this evening as they defeated Everton 2-0 to claim their first win of the season.

What makes the victory even more remarkable is when you consider that Jack Grealish had played in 19 straight Premier League defeats. tweeted this to confirm he had finally got the victory on the 20th attempt.

Wesley had given Villa the lead in the first half but this late strike from Anwar El Ghazi ensured they would finish with all three points.

If you think Jack Grealish’s run was poor then manager Dean Smith had actually been on an even worse run against Premier League competition. Opta Joe confirmed he hadn’t beaten top flight opposition in his previous 25 attempts.

Villa looked like they have enough to survive this season and as long as they can avoid similar runs without a victory they should be fine this year.
