Comments:

League position: 11th Matt Targett's goal was Aston Villa's first winning goal scored in the 90th minute or after in a game in the Premier League since Christian Benteke’s penalty against West Bromwich Albion on 3 March 2015. An opposition player had now been sent-off in two of Villa’s last four games in the Premier League. Jack Grealish had now scored in consecutive games in the Premier League after scoring one goal in his first 41 appearances in the competition. Conor Hourihane scored after 42 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to a foul by Wesley on goalkeeper Mathew Ryan.

Comments:

League position: 16th Brighton and Hove Albion had now lost 15 games in the Premier League in 2019; more than any other team in the division. The Seagulls remained without a win in their six away games in the Premier League at newly-promoted teams (lost four). Aaron Mooy became the first Australian to be sent-off in the Premier League since Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Smith against Swansea City on 1 May 2016.
