Aston Villa beats Blackburn 4-1 in Premier League

Aston Villa beats Blackburn 4-1 in Premier League

Ashley Young scored twice to help Aston Villa beat Blackburn 4-1 and edge away from the Premier League relegation zone.
Young broke the deadlock in the 49th minute with a penalty after he was brought down by Keith Andrews.
Two goals in two minutes, a Grant Hanley own goal and a Stewart Downing run and finish, put Villa 3-0 up after 64 minutes.
Nicola Kalinic's deflected strike gave Blackburn a glimmer of hope, which was almost immediately extinguished when Villa captain Young scored his second a minute later from Downing's cross.
Blackburn had captain Ryan Nelsen sent off late on for his second yellow card after fouling Young.
The win moved Villa up to 12th, one place above Blackburn and five points clear of the relegation zone.
