Aston Villa gave a real football lesson to the bottom of the Premier League, Sheffield, at Bramall Lane and won 5 x 0. Much of the result was built in the first half, with the Lions scoring four goals in just 30 minutes of play. In the second half, those led by Unai Emery exchanged more passes, managed the game more, which called on the home team to attack.

Sheffield fans left the stadium in the first half, when the game was 3 x 0. Those who stayed there saw little of the last place in the Premier League, who, with the defeat suffered at home, registered their eighth game without winning in the competition .

Aston Villa offers a masterful counterattack and opens up a four-goal lead

After four minutes, McGuinn had the first opportunity in favor of Aston Villa. After a free kick from the edge of the area. Five minutes later it was Sheffield’s turn to respond with Brereton Díaz. The number 11 received a deep throw, invaded the area, but shot weakly, over goalkeeper Dibu Martínez, missing a great opportunity.

The game continued to be lively and in the 11th minute Aston Villa opened the scoring with McGinn. After a beautiful counterattack, Ollie Watkins got in Foderingham’s face and played it over the goalkeeper, the ball neatly hit the post and was clear for the number seven to open the scoring.

In another counterattack masterclass, Aston Villa scored their second goal with Ollie Watkins. Douglas Luiz made a cinematic three-finger pass behind the Sheffield defense and found the attacker in normal condition. The center forward got in Foderingham’s face and this time he didn’t forgive, extending the score. It was very easy and in 20 minutes of play, Aston Villa scored their third goal. This time, Leon Bailey was called in from the right, charged unmarked and sent the ball to the bottom of the string.

Ten minutes later, Aston Villa scored their fourth goal, leaving the Sheffield fan stunned, without understanding what was happening. Tielemans took advantage of a surplus of ball inside the penalty area after a corner kick and caught it beautifully with his right leg to send it into the corner, increasing the score even further.

Lions slow down, but increase the rout even more

Unai Emery’s men lost their footing a little in the second half, moving the ball more, but still managed to score another beautiful goal just two minutes into the second half. This time, Aston Villa’s attack exchanged passes with great skill, Ollie Watkins was thrown onto the byline and Álex Moreno caught it first time to score a great goal, the Lions’ fifth at Bramall Lane.

With a five-goal lead, the Aston Villa team, which was no longer playing with such intensity, loosened the grip on Sheffield even further. It was then that the visiting team started to attack more to at least reduce the score. Still in the first half, part of the home fans left the stadium and those who stayed there saw a hard-working team, but very technically limited, that practically failed to attack Emiliano Martínez’s goal.

Vinícius Souza scored an honorary goal for Sheffield, but the move was canceled after a VAR review. It seemed like a punishment for the team’s terrible football.
