At last! Aston Villa have scored a goal...and it's a screamer
New signing Carles Gil is the man to have made the breakthrough.

THEY MAY NOT have scored a Premier League goal since 20th December but Aston Villa have found the net in the FA Cup today.

New signing Carles Gil conjured a delicious, curling strike to the far corner to give Paul Lambert’s side the lead against Championship leaders Bournemouth.

It’s their first goal of any kind since Christian Benteke’s 88th-minute winner against Blackpool in the last round of the Cup. That was on 4th January.

And it got better for Villa twenty minutes after Gil’s strike when Andreas Weimann popped up with a second – only the third time this season that they’ve managed two or more goals in a game.
