  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: Aston Villa claimed their first league win of the season and their first at home since March thanks to goals from new signings Matthew Lowton and Christian Benteke against Swansea.

  3. 90+2

    Swansea have only won four of the 17 league meetings with Villa now as the referee blows his whistle for full-time.

  4. 90+1

    Villa counter-attack and Ron Vlaar shows neat footwork. A captain's performance today!

  5. 90

    The Villa fans are loving this now as they get behind Lambert's side.

  6. 89

    On home soil, the Villans have won just one of their last 14 Premier League games (W1 D5 L8), but it looks to be coming to an end today.

  7. A debut goal for the Belgian international as he picks off Ashley Williams' poor back header to make no mistake from close-range.

  8. 88

    GOAL VILLA! Christian Benteke

  9. 87

    CHANCE! Luke Moore should have scored for Swansea with a close-range header, but Brad Guzan is right behind it.

  10. 86

    Villa have worked hard this half and Swansea have seemingly run out of ideas.

  11. 85

    At the other end Luke Moore turns and tries to ping the ball into the top corner, but it's wide of goal.

  12. 84

    BAD MISS! It should have been a dream debut for Christian Benteke, but the striker contrives to miss the cross from about 3-yards out.

  13. 83

    FINE EFFORT! Karim El Ahmadi's right-foot curler from the edge of the box is palmed away by Vorm.

  14. 82

    Aston Villa are on a run of 13 Premier League games without a win (W0 D6 L7) remember!

  15. 81

    Luke Moore is booed by the home fans as he looks to get his shot away, but it's well blocked.

  16. 80

    YELLOW CARD: Eric Lichaj is rightly booked for bringing Nathan Dyer down.

  17. 79

    SUBSTITUTIONS: Charles N'Zogbia replaces Brett Holman for Villa while Israeli striker Itay Shechter comes on for Leon Britton for the visitors.

  18. 78

    CHANCE! Bent flicks the ball on for Benteke, but the Belgian striker's sidefooter is deflected wide of the target.

  19. 77

    Bent and Benteke combine. A sign of things to come at Villa Park!

  20. 76

    Vorm is out to collect Bannan's outswinger from the other side and now Swansea have the ball in possession.
