Ashley Young's winner deep into injury time took Aston Villa back into fifth place in the Barclays Premier League after a 3-2 result at Everton.

Steve Sidwell had given Villa the lead after just 31 seconds, only for Joleon Lescott to put Everton level by the break.

Phil Jagielka's shocking backpass gave Young the chance to put Villa ahead again, before Lescott's injury time equaliser looked to have given Everton a point. But 60 seconds later, Young broke clear to guide home the winner and leave Everton shattered.
