MATCH SUMMARY

Despite having the best of the first half, Alan Deakin suffers a game ending injury and whilst he remained on the pitch was unable to contribute. The handicap gave Everton the filip they needed to get back in the game and Villa's effective ten men were defeated for the third successive League game to drop to 9th in the table. Surely Villa's luck had to turn soon?

ON THIS DAY

Joe Mercer's Villa lose three successive games for the first time this season and do so without scoring for the first time since the 1955-56 season under Eric Houghton when they finished 20th in the top flight, just outside the relegation places.

Villaโ€™s latest fixture is their second in four days as their wildly interrupted season delivered the inevitable fixture list congestion in the final two months of the season.

As a result of Villaโ€™s failure to score for the sixth time in the last nine they make it twelve wins, seven draws and ten defeats in twenty nine division one games so far this season as a campaign of such promise before the fixture interruption continues to falter.
