Match Events

8′ CHANCE! Grealish’s shot over the bar

Roos’ poor clearance drops right to McGinn who sharply lays the ball off to his left for Grealish. The midfielder cuts inside before drilling a right-footed effort just wide of the goal from the edge of the box.

33′ Not far away! Abraham’s shot over the bar

Abraham picks the ball up on the edge of the box before looking to bend his right-footed effort inside the far post with Keogh backing off. The Englishman’s effort is close, but just curls wide to the left of Roos’ goal.

44′ GOAL! Derby County 0-1 Aston Villa (El Ghazi)

El Ghazi gives Villa the lead! Hourihane slides a wonderful ball down the right for Adomah who quickly lays it off to his left for Elmohamady. The defender whips a wonderful ball into the box which El Ghazi nods into the bottom left corner of the net after getting ahead of Bogle at the far post.

59′ GOAL! Derby County 0-2 Aston Villa (McGinn)

McGinn doubles Villa’s lead! El Ghazi cuts inside of Bogle before seeing his shot deflected high into the air and towards the centre of the box. Roos comes out to claim the looping ball but gets it all wrong as McGinn nips in to nod it into the open goal. 

71′ CHANCE! Bogle’s shot wide out

Mount slides the ball in down the right wing for Bogle who skips inside of El Ghazi before striking across the ball in looking to fire it in at the near post from an acute angle, but the effort just fizzes wide.

81′ GOAL! Derby County 1-2 Aston Villa (Waghorn)

Derby have pulled one back! Mings got back to make an exceptional last-ditch tackle on Waghorn but the ball fell to Jozefzoon down the left. The winger swings a cross into the box and Bogle cushions it down beautifully for Marriott whose strike deflects off Waghorn and into the bottom left corner of the net from the centre of the box.
