Aston Villa 1 West Brom 1 and EPL News:

Hello and welcome to my LATEST blog post, as I talk about today's afternoon match between Aston Villa and West Brom at Villa Park and talk about the LATEST EPL news.

Today's Afternoon Match:

Aston Villa vs West Brom:

This match was played at Villa Park as 16th placed Aston Villa hosted a West Brom side in 6th.

If West Brom won the match, they would move up to 2nd place, 2 points away from leaders Chelsea.


The first half of the match was pretty dull, with both teams failing to take their chances, notably Benteke of Aston Villa and Long of West Brom.


In the second half, the match was brought to life, after West Brom striker Shane Long latched onto a pacy cross by James Morrison to tap the ball past goalkeeper Brad Guzan into the net in the 50th minute.
