Aston Villa: 1 (Luke Young 9’)
Everton: 0

The Villains snatched an early lead from the visiting Toffees in the 9th minute when Luke Young kept his nerve to finish with a left-footed shot past Tim Howard for his second goal for the club.

The lead up play from John Carew and Ashley Young helped the defender through and he did enough to give his side the ascendency early.

Everton enjoyed much more of the play but were unable to find an equaliser and left Villa Park still seeking their first win of the season.
