  • GOOOOALLLLL!!!!! What a start for West Ham!!!! It's the right-back Johnson who has the ball on the right-wing and, despite having options, cuts inside to fire a low shot into the bottom corner that beats Martinez and puts the away side 1-0 up already!!! No one thought he'd shoot, least of all Martinez, who saw the ball very late and couldn't keep it out!

  • The young Villa midfielder can't carry on, and Ashley Young comes on for him.

  • GOOOALLLLL!!!!! There's the equaliser!!! Great play from Villa as McGinn picks out Buendia on the run. He charges into the box and cuts the ball back to the penalty spot, where Watkins is waiting to fire the ball past Fabianski!!! 1-1, and this game is turning into a real cracker!!!

  • GOOOOOOOOOALLLLLL!!!!! They weren't level for long!!!! Benrahma cuts inside again and looks to make space for himself, but he's crowded out. He passes to Rice, who hardly takes a step before firing the ball low into the bottom corner!!! What a strike to put the Hammers back into a 2-1 lead!!!

  • Hause avoids trouble, but the closeness to goal of Konsa's foul sees him given a red card by the referee instead!! It looks harsh given there was minimal contact, but he was the last man and the Villa defender can have few complaints!

    AVL - Ezri Konsa

  • Konsa's dismissal leaves the home side short at the back, and so Tyrone Mings, who's the opposite of short, comes on as Buendia is sacrificed for ten-man Villa.

  • McGinn is also yellow-carded, and after his run in made things much worse, you can't argue with that.

  • Bowen is also booked for his part in the melee, and that could've been ugly if the referee hadn't taken action.

    AVL - John McGinn
    79'
  • GOOOALLLL!!!! That's the third, and it might seal three points for West Ham!!! Bowen sprints forward and is one-on-one with Martinez, who does brilliantly to save his shot. However, Fornals slides in at the back post to fire the rebound home and put West Ham 3-1 up! It's hard to see any way back for the home side now, and the Hammers could well be taking the points back to East London!

  • GOOOOALLLLL!!!! There's number four and Bowen finally has his goal!!! It's the most well-worked move of the game for West Ham; Antonio drives into the box and feeds Lanzini, who unselfishly passes first-time to the unmarked Bowen who makes no mistake in making it 4-1 to the Hammers! What an away performance, and it's game, set and match at Villa Park.
