      Villa bounce back in Bournemouth win

      2024/04/21 17:46

      Aston Villa roared back from a goal down in a 3-1 win over Bournemouth to keep their quest for a top-four finish on track this season. 

      After booking their place in the last four of the Europa Conference League midweek, Villa got off to a bad start against the Cherries and the visitors took the lead from the penalty spot when top-scorer Dominic Solanke made no mistake after Matty Cash had fouled Milos Kerkez. 

      However, Unai Emery's side maintained their focus and levelled just before the break when January signing Morgan Rogers fired high into the roof of the net.

      Despite their European outing, Villa grew stronger as the game progressed and winger Moussa Diaby put the Midlanders ahead in the 57th before Leon Bailey gave the hosts a two-goal cushion 20 minutes later.

      Villa remain fourth in the Premier League and are currently six points in front of Spurs, although the Londoners have two games in hand. Bournemouth, meanwhile, are 13th.

      As a Villa fan, I am absolutely thrilled with this win! Our team showed great perseverance and determination to come back from a goal down. We may have had a slow start, but the boys never gave up and kept fighting until the very end. This victory not only solidifies our quest for a top-four finish, but also shows the strength and depth of our squad. Up the Villa!

      As an Aston Villa fan, I am disappointed to see us go a goal down so early on. But I am proud of the way the team bounced back and secured a 3-1 win. Our focus and determination were evident, and it's great to see new signing Morgan Rogers making an impact. We need to keep this momentum going if we want to secure a top-four finish.
