Watkins breaks Villa PL record as Everton drop back into bottom three
Ollie Watkins' penalty made him the first Aston Villa player to score in five straight Premier League games as their 2-0 win at Everton halted their relegation-battling hosts' resurgence.
Watkins was given the perfect chance to continue his scoring run when John McGinn was blatantly fouled by Idrissa Gana Gueye just inside the Everton box, allowing the striker to smash home down the middle from 12 yards.
After it, Villa comfortably soaked up the hosts' pressure while threatening a second on the break themselves. Substitute Emi Buendia gave them the cushion they wanted in the final minutes, sweeping home after a swift counter-attack to earn the visitors a first win in four games.
