Villa beat Everton for first points of season

Sports News
Aston Villa collected their first Premier League points of the season as goals from Wesley and Anwar El Ghazi gave them victory over Everton.

Brazilian Wesley, who arrived from Bruges for a club record fee, opened his account in English football with a close-range effort from Jota's incisive pass.

El Ghazi sealed victory late on after collecting John McGinn's pass and sliding a shot underneath Jordan Pickford from six yards out.

The result lifts Dean Smith's side up to 11th in the table and gives Villa their first win in the top flight since February 2016.

Substitute Alex Iwobi went closest to scoring for Everton, driving a low effort against the right-hand post at 1-0.

However, it was a largely frustrating evening for Marco Silva's side with Theo Walcott also spurning a glorious 89th minute chance to equalise from a right-foot volley.
