Aston Villa lifted themselves out of the relegation zone last night with a 2-1 home victory over Watford.
The Hornets have been in fine form under new boss Nigel Pearson and they took a 1-0 lead into the break courtesy of a 38th minute Troy Deeney opener.
However, Douglas Luiz levelled proceedings for the hosts with just over 20 minutes remaining before Ezri Konsa bagged a dream 95th minute winner, netting his first in the Premier League.
Or that’s what he thought anyway.
Konsa was convinced that he had completed the best night of his life so far until he was told before his post-match interview that it wasn’t his goal.
- Kammy thought Obafemi Martins was playing for Southampton
- Newcastle score two goals in the final 90 seconds to draw
- Martinelli runs from own half to score for Arsenal
After awaiting confirmation, the 22-year-old’s strike was handed to team-mate Tyrone Mings who claimed the final touch.
Konsa broke down to the floor whilst saying “I’m heartbroken. I’m absolutely heartbroken.”
However, it’s the three points that matters and the youngster eventually looked on the bright side, saying “At least we won.”

You have to feel for the young lad.
Konsa was then joined by actual match-winner Mings in the post-match interview and when asked whose goal it was, the latter replied: “Me, unfortunately.”
The former Brentford man then posted a collage of pictures of the celebration on social media with the caption ‘When you think you’ve scored your first goal for Villa.’
Konsa’s side now sit 16th, two points above the relegation zone whilst Watford dropped down to 19th.
Attentions now turn to next Tuesday as Villa welcome Leicester City as they aim to reach Wembley Stadium in the Carabao Cup final.
As for Watford, they’re back in action tomorrow night as they face League One outfit Tranmere Rovers in an FA Cup third round replay.News Now - Sport News
