BIRMINGHAM – Aston Villa clinched a 1-0 victory over Fulham in a Premier League match on Tuesday, allowing them to move up to fifth position in the table.

Tyrone Mings scored the game’s only goal at Villa Park, heading in John McGinn’s corner in the 21st minute.

Villa are now undefeated in 10 games, and have made an impressive comeback since Unai Emery became their manager.

Emery has won the Europa League four times as coach of Sevilla and Villarreal, and is now leading Villa in their late push for Europe.

“We are in the Europa (League) position. It is still difficult to achieve but after this win we are just ahead of trying to keep being with the option to get there,” said Emery.

“There’s still Liverpool and Tottenham and Brighton (to come) and we are going to fight with them but with each match we are winning, it is giving us confidence and chance to get there.”

Leeds, Leicester share spoils

Leeds and Leicester, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw in their battle to beat the drop.

The Foxes looked to have made the perfect start when Youri Tielemans’ strike found the top corner, but the goal was ruled out for offside against Boubakary Soumare.

Leeds then took the lead when Luis Sinisterra headed in Jack Harrison’s brilliant cross.

Jamie Vardy scored the equaliser for the Foxes with just 10 minutes remaining in the game.

“I probably can’t say what I want to say on TV because I’ll get done but it’s been a weird season for me,” said Vardy. “Hopefully the goals keep coming.”

Leeds were close to snatching a vital win, but Patrick Bamford missed a great chance after Daniel Iversen saved from Marc Roca and Brenden Aaronson.

The draw left Leeds one point ahead of Leicester, who are themselves one point clear of the bottom three.

Wolves moved nine points clear of the relegation zone after inflicting Roy Hodgson’s first defeat since returning as Crystal Palace manager with a 2-0 win at Molineux.

Joachim Andersen’s own goal gave Wolves the perfect start after just three minutes, and Ruben Neves made sure of the victory from the penalty spot deep into stoppage time to take Wolves level on points with Palace in 13th.
