Tyrone Mings scored to help Aston Villa continue its rise up the Premier League in a 1-0 win against Fulham on Tuesday.
After struggling earlier in the season, Villa is now up to fifth in the standings and in contention to qualify for the Europa League.
It has been a remarkable turnaround under Unai Emery, who replaced Steven Gerrard in October after the team had managed only two league wins and sat one place above the relegation zone.
Mings’ 21st-minute header at Villa Park proved enough to extend Villa’s unbeaten run to 10 games, including eight wins.
The defender connected with John McGinn’s corner and flicked the ball past Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno into the far corner for his first goal for the club since November 2021.
