KO
  • GOALLLL!!! 1-0 VILLA! Watkins is afforded far too much space, reaching the area before shooting across goal with his right foot. Guaita saves Watkins’ initial effort but Traore is there to slam in the rebound with his right foot from just outside the six-yard area. Palace were slow to close down Watkins initially and they have been rightly punished for their defensive efforts.

  • Zaha receives the first yellow card of the game for his aggressive response to Mings, as the Palace man seemed incensed by the centre-back's attempts to retrieve the ball for a free-kick.

  • Mings also gets cautioned for his part in the chaos, with referee Taylor booking him for either his initial shove on Zaha or his part in the commotion afterwards.

  • RED CARD! Mings receives his second booking in six minutes and he is given his marching orders! Initially, the centre-back had failed to deal with Palace's first long ball and then, in his attempts to recover, he drags down Zaha near the halfway line, leaving referee Taylor with no option but to issue a second yellow card.

  • Traore, who will perhaps feel a bit harsh done by here, is the man sacrificed in order to bring on centre-back Konsa to partner Hause after Mings' dismissal.

  • Grealish carries the Villans forward before Milivojevic bundles him over, earning the Palace captain a place in referee Taylor's book.

    CRY - Luka Milivojevic
    56'
  • GOALLLL!! 2-0 VILLA! The resulting free-kick is swung in by El Ghazi towards Watkins, who hits the bar with his header from outside the six-yard area. Hause is then quickly onto the rebound as he heads over the line from close range. Guaita thinks he has clawed Hause's effort away, however, referee Taylor points to his watch to show the technology has confirmed the goal.

  • Ward, perhaps in frustration, goes flying through the back of Grealish, leaving Taylor with no option but to book Palace's right-back.

  • Milivojevic, whose needless foul led to the hosts' second goal, is hooked off for Riedewald as the visitors look to find a way back into this game.

  • GOALLL!! 3-0 VILLA! Grealish leads the counter-attack as he rolls in Watkins, whose first touch lets him down. The striker then recovers and plays it back to El Ghazi, who smashes a right-footed effort into the top left corner from the right of the area. That effort left Guaita with no chance and it seems like game over for the visitors.

  • Eze mistimes his sliding tackle as he goes in late on Grealish, who had already released his pass well before Eze's tackle. Unsurprisingly, the Palace man goes into referee Taylor's book for the challenge.
