Aston Villa welcomed Fulham at Villa Park earlier tonight as they hoped to secure all three points in front of their home supporters. The Villans made a solid start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 21st-minute courtesy of Tyrone Mings’ effort. The West Midlands club went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Unai Emery’s men defended their narrow advantage well in the second 45 minutes and earned a narrow 1-0 win at home.

Let’s take a look at how each Aston Villa player performed during the clash against the Cottagers.

GK: Emiliano Martinez – 6.5/10

The Argentine keeper didn’t have a save to make in the game and secured an easy clean sheet at Villa Park.

RB: Ashley Young – 6.5/10

He had a few bright moments in the game and was replaced in the 84th minute.

CB: Ezri Konsa – 7/10

Konsa made a lot of crucial clearances on the defensive end of the field.

CB: Tyrone Mings – 7.5/10

He gave a good account of himself when defending inside his half and scored the only goal of the contest in the 21st minute.

Traore didn’t offer much after coming on as a substitute.

LB: Lucas Digne – 6/10

The Frenchman struggled to get into the rhythm of the game.
