    The past six derbies, however, have been in the Championship - with Jack Grealish attacked by a Blues fan the last time they met in 2019.

  7. Tuesday talking point: We'd have lost this under other managerspublished at 12:00 25 January

    As most Villa fans will agree, this is the type of game we would have lost under previous managers post O'Neill. But, under Gerrard, we seem to have found some grit and determination as well as some free-flowing stylish football, which was shown on Saturday lunchtime.

    In the first half, we controlled the game and played some slick one-touch football. In the second half, Everton made it scrappy and physical but our players stood up to the challenge.

    Although apprehensive of his appointment, I think I speak for all Villa fans that our club has made the right decision. The players all seem to want to play for him and his ability to attract big names such as Coutinho speaks volumes of where he can and wants to take Villa. That, at the moment, is to challenge for European places.

    The rest of the transfer window will be exciting - names such as Luis Suarez, Rodrigo Bentancur and Boubacar Kamara have all been mentioned. Whether any of them materialise remains to be seen but the rest of the season will surely be an exciting one for us Villa fans.

  8. VAR standards in Premier League 'not good enough'published at 10:34 25 January

    Former Manchester City and England defender Micah Richards says VAR in the Premier League is "a shambles" after Liverpool's controversial penalty against Crystal Palace.

    Referee Kevin Friend was advised to go to the monitor and overturn his decision not to award a foul on Diogo Jota by Palace keeper Vicente Guaita.

    VAR has come under increased scrutiny recently after the pattern of referees heading to the monitor and subsequently changing their decision, a situation Richards says is untenable.

    "We've seen VAR used well but the standard in the Premier League is just not good enough," he said on BBC Radio 5 Live's Monday Night Club.

    "I've always tried to be protective of players and referees, but that was one of the worst decisions this season.

    "When you slow something down, it becomes a completely different incident.

    "It's a shambles at the moment."

  9. Your thoughts on Villa's transfer windowpublished at 17:35 24 January

    There's one week to go until the transfer window closes and we've been asking for your thoughts on Aston Villa so far - who should Steven Gerrard buy, sell or keep?

    Here are some of your views:

    Rees: As a lifelong Villa fan this transfer window has been incredible. Lucas Digne, Coutinho and rumours linking us to Luis Suarez. You cannot understate the significance of this transfer window.

    Josh: Aston Villa seem to be going places under Gerrard. If they can sign Luis Suarez that would really make a statement of intent and it would be exciting to see 'El Pistolero' in the Premier League again!

    Herman: Franck Kessie's contract at Milan is set to expire in June and Milan have so far been unsuccessful in their attempts to convince him to stay. Exactly the player Villa need.

  11. Buendia shines again for Villapublished at 10:00 24 January

    Tom Marlow, BBC Radio WM

    While all eyes may have been on one little South American making his full debut for Villa, it was another who used his head wisely to secure all three points and ruin Big Dunc’s big day.

    Emi Buendia marked his resurgence under Steven Gerrard with a clever header to send Villa fans back down the M6 happy, and lead some Everton supporters to stay behind long after the final whistle to vent their anger against the Toffees board.

    Many predicted Buendia’s place in the side to be under threat with Villa’s high-profile new arrival, but he was at the heart of a wave of first-half attacks, while his continental counterpart Coutinho had a largely ineffective afternoon as he builds up his fitness.

    Jordan Pickford had already denied Buendia with a fine save on 13 minutes, but when the smallest man on the field met recent Toffees full-back Lucas Digne’s corner with a clever angled header, the Everton number one could only get fingertips onto it as it looped over him and team-mate Andros Townsend into the net.

    Gerrard refused to comment on the unsavoury scenes which followed the game’s decisive moment, with both the celebrating Digne and Matty Cash floored by missiles from the Gwladys Street End, but he was full of praise for the way his side dug in and fought for a first victory of this new calendar year.

    A two-and-a-half-week break now gives the Villa boss a chance to reflect on a promising first couple of months in charge. A favourable trio of fixtures when the season resumes in February against teams in the bottom six should see Gerrard’s side looking to challenge in the top half of the table, something his exciting squad looks more than capable of achieving.

    The Argentine, who was the game's most dangerous player in the first half, broke the deadlock with an angled header from a corner, which was enough to give Villa all three points on the road.

  13. Everton 0-1 Aston Villa: Pick of the statspublished at 08:31 24 January

    • Everton have now failed to score in each of their past three Premier League games against Aston Villa (D1 L2), their longest such run since a five-game stretch between August 1998 and November 2000 (D2 L3).

    • The Toffees have recorded 19 points from their first 20 Premier League games this season, their lowest total at this stage since 1997-98 (17), a season they finished 17th – their joint-lowest ever Premier League finish.

    • Villa’s 1-0 win means they have beaten Everton home and away in a Premier League season for the first time since 2000-01 under John Gregory.

    • Lucas Digne became the first player to assist a Premier League goal at Goodison Park against Everton having previously played for them in the competition - since Nikica Jelavic for Hull in December 2014.

    • Since the start of the 2020-21 Premier League season, only Manchester City’s Ederson (31) and Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy (24) have kept more clean sheets among goalkeepers in the competition than Aston Villa’s Emiliano Martinez (21).

  14. 'A very sweet win for Gerrard and Villa'published at 07:36 24 January

    Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard knew what was coming – not simply in terms of the reception he would receive from Everton fans – when his side visited Goodison Park.

    This would not be a time for the faint-hearted and so it proved as Everton were in the mood to test Villa physically if not exactly with quality.

    Villa, with Emiliano Buendia the star man and goalscorer, set the platform by taking a first-half lead then they were forced to dig deep and put bodies on the line as Everton tested their courage after the break.

    It was not a vintage Villa display but it was never a day for that and manager Gerrard will have been just as satisfied that his players got the job done by doing the dirty work as he would have done had they prevailed by playing a more purist style. A very sweet win for Liverpool’s former captain.
