EPL: Everton’s Unbeaten Run Ends at Villa Park

Everton’s English Premier League (EPL) unbeaten run ended with goals scored within nine minutes against Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday, September 18th, 2021.

As one of only five Premier League teams still unbeaten before Saturday’s game, the Toffees fell apart in the second half as the hosts took the three points.

In the 66th minute Villa full-back Matty Cash fired past stand-in Everton goalkeeper Asmir Begovic with a fine left-footed finish.

The Toffees conceded again three minutes later as substitute Leon Bailey’s corner was headed into his own net by Lucas Digne at the near post.

Bailey added a third 15 minutes from full-time after showing great composure to nod the ball down before finding the roof of the net with a thunderous strike.

After a disappointing start to the season, Dean Smith’s side move up to 10th in the table with their second victory of the campaign.
