10-man Astonvilla secures victory over Crystal Palace

Aston Villa continued their fine run of form with a 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace despite playing with 10 men for more than half the match. The hosts led through Bertrand Traoré’s early opener and should have been further ahead when Tyrone Mings was shown two yellow cards in quick succession just before half-time.

Palace were unable to take advantage, though, failing to seriously test Emi Martínez in a second half that saw Kortney Hause and Anwar El Ghazi extend Villa’s lead. The result lifted Villa into the Premier League’s top six for a few hours at least while Palace have now conceded 10 goals in two matches after last weekend’s hammering by Liverpool.
