"Incredible Dexterity" Aston Villa player ratings after beating historic Bolton

Aston Viilla's 2-0 victory meant a record of nine club wins – but Bolton Wanderers, who were relegated to League One after the defeat, had no good on Friday.

After 47 minutes, Jack Grealish opened the door before settling for a superb equalizer for Tammy Abraham, who had injured his shoulder at the patch of the 25th year.

Axel Tuanzebe also injured in the only comfortable victory on the road.

Gregg Evans was at the University of Bolton Stadium. That's how he rated the players:


Did not have much to do, but was attentive and reliable Well secured by Donaldson in the first half and commanded his area well.

Use curious deliveries, including one that El Ghazi should have converted in the first half. He regularly came forward and played along.


He used his pace and strength to overcome difficult situations, but in truth he was rarely worried. Injured


Composed and measured in the heart of the defense and like the rest of the defense he had not much to do. From a close range rejected with a header.

Taylor, 7

I got stuck and limited the threat on his side. Also participated in the attacks and created many opportunities.


Never stopped running (has he ever?) And had cleared a header off the line in the first half. Taken off as a precaution.


Passed the ball well, made crucial interventions and generally held his impressive current form.

Villa face anxiously waiting for worrying injury from Abraham – READ


Won fouls, made room for others, picked out clever passes, scored the decisive goal for the first goal and set up the second. Could have had another, but Alnwick saved well. Proved an incredible ability to found Abraham.


Worked hard and played his part in another victory. Did not have as much influence as he would like but was still a threat.


Came alive in the second half to make a difference with his direct approach. He scored many chances, but missed a great opportunity from close range in the first half.

He scored another goal to bring his record for the season to 25, but was forced with a shoulder injury.


DAVIS (for Abraham 60), 7

Strong as an ox and had a great chance that the outside of the post flashed. Maybe needed in the next few weeks.

HOURIHANE (for McGinn) 7

The ball passed well when he came and helped to watch the game

JEDINAK (for Tu'an Be, 74), 7

Had a few chances to score when he came. Firm and unclouded on the back.


Sarkic, Lansbury, Green, Bjarnason.
