  1. Thanks for all your comments today folks! Don't forget, you can always follow me on Twitter: @RazMirza or send me your views so speak to you all soon!

  2. FULL-TIME: Everton secure their first victory at Villa Park for seven years. The last time that happened they went on to secure a Champions League spot. Pienaar, Fellaini and Jelavic all scored in the first half before Clark was sent-off just before the hour mark denying Everton a clear goalscoring opportunity. The 10-men did pull a goal back through El Ahmadi, but the visitors deservedly went home with all three points.

  3. 90+2

    Referee Michael Oliver checks his watch as Brett Holman fires his cross across the face of goal.

  4. 90+1

    Leon Osman fails to get enough pace on his shot from the edge of the area.

  5. 90

    Villa were so close to reducing the arrears as we enter stoppage time. The Holte End is virually empty now!

  6. 89

    OFF THE POST! Andreas Weimann's left-foot shot strikes the base of the post and Darren Bent fails to finish the follow up.

  7. 88

    Everton's last win at Villa Park came in February 2005, but they're on course for victory this afternoon.

  8. 87

    OFFSIDE! Kevin Mirallas thought he had scored his first Everton goal with a neat header, but he was just off from Seamus Coleman's cross.

  9. 86

    SUBSTITUTION: Johnny Heitinga replaces Nikica Jelavic as David Moyes makes his final change.

  10. 85

    Kevin Mirallas has shown some fine movement since he came on. He can switch from right to left.

  11. 83

    Villa only have Newcastle away next weekend before the international break.

  12. 82

    David Moyes have got their transfer business done early this year and look a stronger outfit this year, especially in attack.

  13. 81

    The home fans start to leave Villa Park. I don't think those two and a half thousand Evertonians will be leaving anytime soon.

  14. 80

    YELLOW CARD: Karim El Ahmadi is booked for a late challenge.

  15. 79

    Referee Michael Oliver has awarded Villa a free-kick in the middle of the park, which the fans cheer.

  16. 77

    El Ahmadi's goal was just Villa's 10th goal since the injury to striker Darren Bent and that will have given them some confidence.

  17. 76

    This has been a brave effort from the 10-men of Aston Villa.

  18. 75

    That's the first Aston Villa goal under the reign of manager Paul Lambert.

  19. The Moroccan collects the ball about 25-yards from goal and thumps his right-foot effort past Tim Howard's despairing dive.

  20. 74

    GOAL!! Karim El Ahmadi
