ON THIS DAY

Sheffield United, the regular thorn in Villa's side whether playing in the same division or languishing in the lower leagues, strike again.

Villa had now lost six of their last eight games in the Premier League, winning one.

Following Jack Grealishโ€™s penalty miss Villa remained the only one of 16 teams to have been awarded a spot kick to have yet converted one.

Villa had now conceded 22 league goals in the second-half more than any other team.
