MATCH REPORT

*The Birmingham Daily Post*
Monday 30 November 1891

EVERTON V. ASTON VILLA.

The visit of the Aston Villa to Liverpool attracted fully 7,000 people to the Anfield ground.

Aston Villa began well, but their attack was frustrated by the Everton backs, and for a little while afterwards the home side had much the better of the play.

At length Hodgetts broke away, and the visitors scored.

Everton then played up hard; but although they pressed hard they could not force the ball between the Villa posts.

One corner to Aston Villa and two to Everton had no result, so when half-time arrived the Birmingham eleven led by 1 goal to 0.

In the second half Everton gave a splendid display of football.

Chadwick at once equalised, and following this score the ball was repeatedly sent in to the Villa goalkeeper.

Another goal by Chadwick placed the visitors a point ahead.

Though the Villa strove hard to get on terms, the Everton defence was very sound, and Latta put on a third point.

The visitors still played pluckily, but Williams cleared, and, the home forwards getting away, Wyllie and Maxwell both scored.

The result was thus a brilliant victory for Everton by 5 goals to 1.
