Dean Smith’s men constantly troubled Frank Lampard and co, which yielded them a two-goal lead within an hour mark.

Dutch winger El Ghazi scored the opener with a brilliant header – thanks to Villa’s incredible counter-attack.

Hourihane played a brilliant through ball to Adomah after receiving the short pass from Jack Grealish, who initiated the attack.

Later, the right-back Elmohamady fed El Ghazi a precise cross to make it 1-0 on the scoreboard. John McGinn doubled the lead with an untidy goal inside the first quarter of the second half.

And the 2-1 victory allowed the Blue and Claret army to book their places in the Premier League for next season.
