Ashley Young made Sunderland pay for conceding two free-kicks in dangerous positions as Aston Villa came from behind to win 2-1 and bolster their place in the top four of the Barclays Premier League.

The Black Cats had taken the lead through Djibril Cisse after 10 minutes but Young quickly retaliated from 20 yards out after being brought down by Liam Miller.

Then Anton Ferdinand handled just outside the box and Young's free-kick deflected via Stiliyan Petrov to John Carew who grabbed the winner after 33 minutes.
