Spirited Villa overcome Toffees

Published Add your comment

Luke Young scored his first goal for nearly two years to earn Aston Villa a 1-0 victory over Everton and boost caretaker manager Kevin MacDonald's chances of becoming Martin O'Neill's successor.

The former England defender, who rejected a move to Liverpool earlier this month, dealt a blow to the other side of Merseyside with his ninth-minute winner.

It was Villa's second league win under MacDonald as they bounced back from their Europa League exit at the hands of Rapid Vienna.
