So, here’s the thing - Aston Villa currently have eight goals through two games. Four against Norwich on the weekend and four right now against Wigan Athletic in the Second Round of this year’s Carabao Cup. What a time to be alive.
And for those at Villa Park? They might have just witnessed the becoming of Birkir Bjarnason as the tricky Icelandic midfielder is finally off the mark for the Villans. Scott Hogan is involved, but only because he missed out on Ritchie De Laet’s deft cross into the box. Birkir found it and bagged his reward. His first goal in Claret & Blue, and Villa’s fourth on the night. Well done all!

With that, the game looks done and dusted. What a good job by Villa’s 2nd and 3rd stringers to blow away the top side in League One. We’ll see you soon as we enter the Third Round of the cup, with the draw taking place in just over 6 and half hours in Beijing.
