West Ham United 1-1 Aston Villa

(25′ mins): Trézéguet dragged Villa’s best early opportunity the wrong side of an upright after Jack Grealish had fashioned an opening, while Ezri Konsa Ngoyo nodded over as the West Midlanders began to find their feet.

Lukasz Fabianski turned aside Conor Hourihane’s dead-ball attempt as Villa stepped up the tempo – and midway through the half, they restored parity. Grealish with a crisp finish from fully 25-yards.
