(EFE) – Aston Villa inflicted the first defeat of the season on Rafa Benítez’s Everton with two goals in three minutes (3-0).
The ‘Toffees’, who remained undefeated after four days of the Premier, fell at Villa Park after a three-minute lack of control. A boarding by Matt Cash, who put it in the squad, and a shot by Lucas Digne in his own goal after a closed corner by Leon Bailey, certified the defeat of Everton, who still had time to take the 3-0 on the counterattack, in Bailey’s boots, who shot Asmir Begovic.
Without James Rodríguez in the team, but with Salomón Rondón for the first time as a starter, Everton loses the opportunity to catch Liverpool in the first place of the Premier and remains fifth, with ten points, but with the possibility that Brighton, West Ham and Tottenham pass them this weekend.
Villa, who recovered Emiliano Martínez for the cause after his quarantine in Croatia, climbed to tenth position, with seven points.
