Analysis

Villa produced a second-half masterclass to demolish Championship leaders Wolves and maintain their promotion challenge.

After Albert Adomah's opening goal was cancelled out by a Diogo Jota equaliser, Steve Bruce's men struck twice in five minutes through James Chester and Lewis Grabban before sub Birkir Bjarnason completed a morale-boosting victory.

The early breakthrough followed a Robert Snodgrass corner which was headed back into the goalmouth. 

Lewis Grabban put the visitors defence under pressure before Adomah stabbed home from close range.  

Wolves were level when Jota scrambled the ball over the line from close range from Matt Dohety's low cross, and both teams looked capable of scoring every time they went forward.

Grabban had chances either side of half-time, firing into the side netting and then having a fierce shot charge down, before Chester restored the lead on 57 minutes.

Snodgrass whipped in a menacing free-kick from the left and Chester emerged from a crowd of players as he stretched to send a low shot into the corner of the net.

The third goal was pure class, Jack Grealish's fine pass setting up Adomah for a left-wing cross which Grabban diverted past keeper John Ruddy and inside the near post.

And just when we thought it couldn't get any better, Bjarnason made a forceful run through the Wolves defence before drilling a right-foot shot from just inside the penalty area.
