Anwar El Ghazi put the Claret and Blues in front before John McGinn doubled Villa's advantage in the second period, and despite Martyn Waghorn reducing the arrears, Dean Smith's men held on for the victory.

Prince William has been a Villa fan since his childhood, and he was spotted hugging the club's former striker John Carew as the final whistle blew following the 2-1 win over Derby County.
