The Savo and Ugo show…

The Savo and Ugo show…

On this day in 1997, Villa were 2-1 winners against Everton at Villa Park.

Brian Little’s side hadn’t made the best of starts to the season, lying 15th in the table after 14 games, and it looked like getting worse when Gary Speed put the Merseysiders ahead with a 12th-minute penalty.

But Savo Milosevic equalised on 36 minutes after Stan Collymore had headed on Steve Staunton’s corner, and central defender Ugo Ehiogu headed a 56th-minute winner from another Staunton flag kick.
