Published Add your comment

John Carew and Ashley Young grabbed a brace apiece as Aston Villa thrashed local rivals Birmingham 5-1 to stay on course for Europe and send Blues a step closer to Barclays Premier League relegation.

Martin O´Neill´s side outgunned their woeful opponents in all departments to close the gap on fifth placed Everton to three points.

Gabriel Agbonlahor completed the Villa rout and all that third-bottom Blues could manage in reply was a consolation goal from substitute Mikael Forssell.
