Highlights: Aston Villa 1-2 Bournemouth

By on 17th August 2019

Bournemouth scored two early goals at Villa Park on Saturday as Eddie Howe’s side picked up their first win of the 2019-20 Premier League campaign.

Last season’s EFL Championship playoff winners are pointless after two games after conceding three goals in the final 20 minutes at Tottenham Hotspur on the opening weekend of the new season.

A rush of blood to the head from goalkeeper Tom Heaton saw Aston Villa concede a penalty after only 45 second by taking out Callum Wilson who was going away from goal. Josh King stepped up to convert the spot kick into the opposite corner to which Heaton dived.

The visitors doubled their lead in the 12th minute when Harry Wilson picked up a lose pass from Trezeguet and fired home a 30-yard effort off the inside of the post.

£15 million summer signing Douglas Luiz scored in his first start for Villa with a stunning strike of his own into the top corner from outside the penalty area. This left Dean Smith’s side 20 minutes to find an equaliser but the Cherries were able to hold on.
