EPL: Wilson scores debut goal as Bournemouth stun Villa
Harry Wilson scored on his Bournemouth debut as two early goals saw the Cherries sink Premier League newcomers Aston Villa.
The visitors were awarded a penalty after just 45 seconds when Callum Wilson was brought down in the box by Tom Heaton – making his home debut for Villa – with Joshua King making no mistake from the spot.
Wilson, on loan at Eddie Howe’s side from Liverpool, doubled their lead with just 12 minutes played when a deflection took his left-footed strike past Heaton.
Douglas Luiz, who was making his first start for Villa, scored a late consolation for the hosts, finding the top corner with a stunning strike from outside the box.
In a fiery encounter at Villa Park – hosting its first top-flight match in 1,197 days – Bournemouth were lucky to see out the first half with all 11 men, with Philip Billing walking a narrow tightrope with a number of poor challenges before the break.
