Evergreen Ashley Young makes Aston Villa history during Palace clash


Evergreen Ashley Young makes Aston Villa history during Palace clash


A hugely impressive statistic surrounding the creative exploits of Aston Villa star Ashley Young has come to the fore on Saturday afternoon.

Targett strikes

Steven Gerrard’s Villans are currently locked in Premier League action at Selhurst Park.

In their 2nd outing since the long-awaited change on the club’s bench earlier this month, the Claret and Blue made the trip to Crystal Palace, hopeful of building on an impressive 2-0 downing of Brighton & Hove Albion last time out.

And, as things stand in the capital, this is precisely what Villa are headed towards.

A dominant first-half display, throughout which the visitors controlled proceedings, particularly in the middle of the park, saw Gerrard and co. carry a deserved 1-goal advantage into the interval.

Matt Targett proved the man on target, slotting home at the back post with a quarter of an hour on the clock.

Forever Young

As alluded to above, though, Targett’s rare strike did not only prove significant in putting Villa in front at Selhurst Park this afternoon.

This comes with the man to have teed up the defender – in the form of Ashley Young, having, in the process, etched his name into the storied history books of the Claret and Blue.

As revealed across Aston Villa’s social media platforms, veteran wide-man Young, who of course secured a return to the club this past summer on the back of a successful stint in Italy, has now provided more Premier League assists in the colours of the Villans than any other player:
