Aston Villa 3-0 Everton: Substitute Leon Bailey Scores, Forces Own-Goal And Goes Off Injured All Inside 19 Minutes

Posted by

Villa did so much right for an hour, but the most crucial thing was incorrect.

They developed cold feet time and time again in the last third. They had the movement, energy, flair, and ideas, but their decision-making gave this patched-up Everton side hope that their unbeaten start would continue for another week.

Everton’s hopes were dashed in the space of two minutes, Villa were 2-0 up, out of sight, and fingers were pointed at Lucas Digne.

After heading into his own net from Leon Bailey’s corner, the French defender was staring to the heavens less than two minutes later. He appeared to want Villa Park to devour him whole.

Bailey added a third goal, his first in a Villa shirt since coming for £25 million from Bayer Leverkusen, before dedicating it to Steffie Gregg, a Jamaican social media personality and daughter of former racing car driver Gary Gregg.
