A Villa 1 - 0 Fulham


Aston Villa moved up to fifth in the Premier League and leapfrogged Tottenham with a 1-0 win over Fulham at Villa Park on Tuesday night as they stretched their unbeaten run to 10 games.

Unai Emery’s side are on a mission to qualify for Europe after 12 years away and they showed no sign of slowing down against Fulham with Tyrone Mings’ first-half header clinching their eighth win in their last 10 games after an impressive first-half display.

Fulham head coach Marco Silva this week took exception to suggestions his side were “on the beach”, but the Cottagers produced a poor display in Birmingham and failed to trouble Villa despite the hosts taking their foot off the gas after the break.

Villa now sit a point above managerless Spurs having played a game more than the north Londoners, who host fourth-placed Manchester United on Thursday night. Fulham, meanwhile, saw their two-game winning run come to an end but they remain a point above west London rivals Brentford in ninth.

Team news

  • Emiliano Martinez recovered from a stomach bug to start for Aston Villa as Unai Emery named an unchanged side.
  • Fulham head coach Marco Silva brought Dan James into the team and had to make a late tweak with Willian dropping out of the line-up for Manor Solomon.
