Aston Villa

Aston Villa defeated Bournemouth 1-0 away from home in the Premier League on Saturday.

Aston Villa kicked off their 2015-16 Premier League campaign with an away win.

Tim Sherwood’s side got the better of newly-promoted outfit Bournemouth 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Rudy Gestede’s goal in the 72nd minute proved to be the difference between the two sides.

It was the 26-year-old striker’s debut goal on his first competitive appearance for the Villans, having joined them from Championship club Blackburn Rovers last month.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at the Vitality Stadium, Villa had 42% of the possession, took seven shots of which three were on target, and earned three corners.

Hosts Bournemouth had 58% of the possession, took 11 shots of which just two were on target, and earned six corners.

The win will be a massive boost to Villa, who narrowly avoided relegation from the Premier League at the end of last season.
