A match of two halves with Aston Villa looking the better team in the first half and West Brom stepping up in the second. Benteke’s first goal was a fantastic strike from outside of the box. Both sides had penalty shouts turned down. In the 90th minute Aston Villa had an obvious back pass sent to their keeper Brad Guzan, but the referee bizarrely, did not give the free kick. Not a great showing by the referee on the day. The draw does move Aston Villa out of the bottom three. Their 20 points puts them above Reading by 1 point and just below Newcastle’s 21.
