This was Villa far from their best, but, at this stage of the season, that doesn't matter.

It may actually be a positive for Unai Emery.

After a defeat by Tottenham and a draw at West Ham, three points were the most important thing.

The pressure was on after Spurs' win over Luton earlier on Saturday too but they found a way to get the job done.

Moussa Diaby's eighth goal of the season was a good strike and continued his good campaign.

What a week Ezri Konsa has had too. The defender made his England debut and his goal, though fortuitous, sealed an important win.

Villa's progress under Emery is clear to see and they have now won as many games in the Premier League as last season with eight matches still to play.
