On Sunday, Villa and West Brom were held to a 2-2 draw at Villa Park. With each team arriving on the back of a league defeat, they were both keen to pick up points. Villa arrived at the game looking pick up points after losing their last game 2-1 to Manchester City. West Brom were beaten 3-0 in the previous match against Leicester City. As it stands, Villa are in 11th place on the table and has 45 points while West Brom sit in 19th with 25 points after 33 matches.

Villa started strong and were rewarded for their efforts, with Anwar El Ghazi giving The Villa the lead, 9 minutes in. However, the good fortune didn’t last for long. An equalizer from Matheus Pereira in the 23rd minute brought The Baggies level. They then scored again, increasing their advantage thanks to a calamitous own goal from Tyrone Mings just before half-time. The score at half time was 1-2.

Villa took the lead in the second half, thanks to a goal from Keinan Davis just before the final whistle. The game ended 2-2.

For Villa, Jacob Ramsey, Keinan Davis and Wesley, came on for Callum Robinson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles. West Brom brought on Matt Phillips and Dara O’Shea, to replace Callum Robinson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

The referee booked two players from West Brom, Conor Gallagher and Okay Yokuslu.

Villa will play their next fixture away against Everton, while West Brom will face Wolverhampton Wanderers at home.
