Allardyce Suffer Debut Defeat As Villa Thrash West Bromwich 3-0 At Home

West Bromwich's new boss, Sam Allardyce was given a debut defeat as Aston Villa thrashed the baggies 3-0 on home turf as Anwar El Ghazi and a second-half Bertrand Traore strike extends the losing streak.

AllNews reported earlier that Allardyce replaced the sacked Slaven Bilic in midweek but there was little he could do as his side suffered another loss to keep them in the relegation zone.

Aston Villa striker, El-Ghazi deftly steered home Traore's cross to the far post in the fifth minute.

West Brom had captain Jake Livermore sent off following a VAR review for a reckless tackle on Jack Grealish and Allardyce's new charges barely threatened after that, managing a single shot in the whole game.

Traore scored his first Premier League goal and Villa's second six minutes from time and El Ghazi slotted home a late penalty to secure a win.

The victory lifts Villa to ninth spot on 22 points after 12 games, while West Brom remains second from bottom with seven points from 14 games.
