Chelsea Falters @ Aston Villa

Aston Villa are looking like a team that can cause some damage to the top 4-5 teams in the EPL. Although Villa, traditionally a big club with huge support in the city of Birmingham & otherwise, have never won the EPL or finished above 7th place, they can be counted for some memorable matches. Against Chelsea, debutant Zat Knight and Gabriel Agbonlahor, both local boys and lifelong Villa supporters, scored in the second half to leave Mourinho still waiting for his first Premier League victory at Villa Park.

In other matches I saw last night, Manchester City lost to a solitary goal @ Blackburn while in the Spanish Premier League, Bracelona beat Athletico Bilbao 3-1, with a brace by Ronaldinho, their first win of the new season. Meanwhile, Read Madrid continued their impressive start by thrashing Villareal 5-0, with new sigining Wesley Snider scoring 2 goals. The former Ajax midfielder now has 3 goals in his first season in Spain. Fellow Dutchman Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Guti & Raul had the other goals.
