West Ham 0-1 Aston Villa

Dec 22, 2008

Aston Villa moved into third place in the Premier League after James Milner’s deflected late goal sank West Ham.

An open first half saw Ashley Young hit the post for Villa after running on to a poor Scott Parker back-pass but West Ham dominated after the break.

Carlton Cole headed an easy chance over and was denied twice from close range by Villa goalkeeper Brad Friedel.

The visitors looked short of ideas until Milner’s 78th-minute cross looped off Lucas Neill and into the net.
