In the hot seat, Steven Gerrard now has one foot and four toes in the grave. In his fortieth match on the bench, the Aston Villa boss could not avoid defeating his team, who traveled to London to face Fulham, on the twelfth day of the English Premier League.
To join the top ten, the Cottages relied on Harrison Reed to open the scoring (1-0, 36th place). To make matters worse, Douglas Luiz was sent off after the hour (63) after warming up with Aleksandar Mitrovic, who then enjoyed converting the penalty 2-0 (67th place). At the end of the match, as a symbol of the team adrift, Tyrone Mings tricked Emiliano Martinez and added a further thickness to Fulham’s success (3-0, 83). Issa Diop played the entire match while Lewin Kurzawa missed the London team’s list of goals, Morgan Sanson was a substitute, while Denny and Kamara are still injured by Villans, the current 17th.
