MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€œIt hurts because we should have been three up in the first half. With Christian Bentekeโ€™s two chances and one from Andreas Weimann we had big moments in the game, but thatโ€™s the way football is. We canโ€™t be too harsh on the lads because more times than not they score those.โ€

Paul Lambert, Saturday, 26 October 2013.

*BBC Sport*
Saturday, 26 October 2013

*Romelu Lukaku scored his fifth goal in as many games as Everton continued their excellent run at Aston Villa.*

The Belgium striker, who was kept quiet for most of the game by the Villa defence, struck from the edge of the box midway through the second half.

He overshadowed compatriot Christian Benteke, who earlier had a penalty saved by Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard.

As Villa pressed for a late leveller, Leon Osman stroked in for Evertonโ€™s fifth victory in six league games.

The substituteโ€™s goal might have been harsh on the hosts, but they suffered their second consecutive home defeat after failing to take advantage of some superb first-half opportunities.

That was largely down to Howard, who also saved two one-on-one breaks from Benteke and Andreas Weimann.

But Villa boss Paul Lambert may take positives from the fact his side have a favourable run of fixtures in November after having now faced six of last seasonโ€™s top seven teams.

Having withstood early pressure, victory for Everton - who climb to fourth in the table - provided further evidence of their growing confidence under boss Roberto Martinez as they again showed the necessary steel to go with some incisive attacking play.

Billed as the battle of the Belgian strikers between Benteke and Lukaku, it was the Everton forward who made a decisive mark on the game before Osman sealed the three points.

Benteke, on the other hand, had been guilty of wastefulness in a lively opening first period.

Villaโ€™s top scorer, returning to the starting line-up after a hip injury, won the early penalty after being tripped in the penalty box by Seamus Coleman.

The 22-year-old stepped up confidently, but Howard dived superbly to his right to tip the ball over the bar with his left hand.

The Villa forward again could not find a way past Howard when he was put through by Aleksandar Tonev as the game opened up around the half-hour mark, while Weimann was also culpable of wasting a great chance as he raced through on goal.

Villa did not look like a side which has won more points away from home than at Villa Park under Lambert, but their failure to capitalise appeared to give Everton confidence.

The visitors had their own profitable spell when Lukakuโ€™s header was saved before Ross Barkleyโ€™s 25-yard shot was deflected onto the bar.

Although both teams continued to press for an opener after the break, it was Villa who had the initiative until Lukaku made his mark.

Having been well marked by Ron Vlaar for most of the afternoon, the 20-year-old striker was found by Osmanโ€™s pass and made no mistake by finding the bottom corner from the edge of the area for his 16th goal in 2013.

Villa responded, but this time it was Gabriel Agbonlahor who shot straight at Howard when Weimannโ€™s low centre found the English striker in space.

And, following a cleared corner, Osman sealed the win when he passed into the bottom corner after good work by Gareth Barry.
