Villa Win to Dent Everton European Hopes

 Anwar El Ghazi’s 80th-minute strike dented Everton’s European hopes as Aston Villa secured a hard-fought 2-1 win at Goodison Park.

Ollie Watkins’ 14th Premier League goal of the season put Villa ahead after a mistake from Mason Holgate (13) but Dominic Calvert-Lewin restored parity when he met Lucas Digne’s corner (19).

But with the game meandering towards a draw, El Ghazi was afforded too much time to curl a shot into the far corner to clinch an eighth Premier League away win of the season for Dean Smith’s side.

The result means Everton remain in eighth place – nine points off the Champions League places with five games remaining – while Villa rise to ninth.
