Everton 3-1 Aston Villa: FA Cup Reaction


Everton progressed to the Quarter Finals of the FA Cup for the first time in seven years with a well deserved victory over rivals Aston Villa today.

High flying Villa, who had previously won seven away games in a row on the way to claiming third position in the Premier League had no answers to Everton’s imperious defence and were unable to contain the attacking threat posed by an understrength Everton team.

Mikel Arteta celebrates his cooly taken spotkick against Villa.

Youngsters Jack Rodwell, Dan Gosling and Victor Anichebe all impressed for the home side along side their more experienced stars like Arteta and Cahill who were superb too. I said a while ago that the winners of this match were my tip for the trophy, and I stand by that.
