ON THIS DAY

The final game in the longest season in English league history - and also the most bizarre.

The woeful Video Assistant Referee, the mid season suspension for 100 days and the resumption of games behind closed doors saw this most strange and taxing of seasons face its reckoning today.

To add to the intrigue Villa found themselves in a three way fight for Premier League safety and whilst Villa had been emboldened across recent performances - unbeaten in 3, winning 2 - to put their destiny in their own hands the permutations, twists and turns and spectre of VAR remained.

| R | 19 | AFC Bournemouth | P37 | W8 | D7 | L22 | F37 | A64 | GD-27 | Pts 31 |

Villa faced a resurgence West Ham, Bournemouth were away to a woeful Everton whilst Watford whose season had come off the rails both on and off the pitch were away to Arsenal.

Villa simply needed to better the results of Watford and Bournemouth to guarantee another season in the Premier League.

HT Arsenal 3-1 Watford
HT Everton 1-2 AFC Bournemouth
HT West Ham United 0-0 Aston Villa

A West Ham goal would see Villa fall into the relegation places.

Watford pull a goal back at Arsenal 2-3

Former Villa striker Dion Dublin โ€œVilla are looking the worst of the teams in danger of going downโ€

17.39
Bournemouth extend their lead at Everton 1-3
Villa remain goal-less and a concession would guarantee relegation

17.44
Jack Grealish scores for Villa - his first goal since the resumption of the Premier League - with 6 minutes of the season left.

17.46
West Ham United equalise

17.46
BBC Sport
โ€œStraight from the restart West Ham are level! Andriy Yarmolenko has a shot from a long, long way out, it takes a massive deflection off of Jack Grealish and loops up. Pepe Reina is slow to get back, he canโ€™t get there and it loops in!โ€

17.46
Former Villa striker Chris Sutton
โ€œHeart attack stuff for Dean Smith, Villa thought they had done enough with the Grealish goal. Pepe Reina is so slow, the deflection came off Grealish but Reina has to do so much better than that. Thatโ€™s the first real shot on target for West Ham, Reina has to do so much better than that.โ€

17.51
FOUR minutes added on.

MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* *Sunday, 26 July 2020* โ€œWhen Jack scores you think 'That's it we're safe' but a deflection made it a little bit nervous, but we saw it out well. I'm immensely proud and I've said that in the dressing room. We now look like Premier League players. "My whole family are in the living room watching together. It's been emotional because I lost my father to coronavirus. I'm sure he'll be looking down on us."
