Sport: Not many seconds had passed in the match at Villa Park when the visitors’ Harvey Elliott hit a seemingly harmless cross. The ball did indeed change direction, but at the first post goalkeeper Martinez still seemed to be in control.

He didn’t have that.

Instead of holding the ball, the Argentine fumbled the ball under him and then involuntarily pushed it into the goal.

– One of the worst goalkeeper mistakes in recent years’ Premier League. He will be reminded of that, said Viaplay commentator Kasper Wikestad.

– One of the most absurd goals of the season. Martinez will naturally have it a thousand times out of a thousand anyway, added expert Lars Tjærnås.

After twelve minutes, Youri Tielemans equalized for the home team. Ollie Watkins provided the assist for the goal.

Monday’s game is of great importance for Villa. With victory, the club is guaranteed a place in the Champions League for the autumn. Defeat would mean Tottenham could be invited into the match.

The fight is still going on.
