  • Full time at the Britannia and Villa secure a mightily impressive three points through Andreas Weimann's goal. It's finished Stoke City 0-1 Aston Villa. Thanks for joining me!

  • CHANCE FOR STOKE! Arnautovic finds space in the area to fire in on goal, but it's blocked by Senderos superbly. The ball is eventually cleared by Villa.

  • Villa have a corner and opt to keep the ball in the corner, as time ticks away for Stoke.

  • Villa are camped firmly in their half but as they've done throughout this game, they look comfortable in defence as Stoke continue to press.

  • FIVE minutes of stoppage time to be played here!

  • Villa keeping possession calmly in midfield as Stoke frantically try to recover the ball. It looks like it's going to be Paul Lambert's day.

  • CHANCE FOR VILLA! They break on the counter through Grealish who finds Delph, who delivers a ball into the area towards an unmarked Bacuna six-yards out, but he spoons his effort wide of goal. Would've guaranteed the three points.

  • Stoke get a free-kick and a deflection almost loops over Guzan and into the top-right corner, but fortunately for Villa it bounces wide of goal as Guzan breathes a sigh of relief.

  • Arnautovic takes it beyond Hutton on the left wing, but his cross is wildly overhit and it flies out of play and into the stands. Been a frustrating afternoon for the Austrian.

  • Leandro Bacuna comes on for Andreas Weimann (Aston Villa)

  • Glenn Whelan comes off for Charlie Adam (Stoke)

  • It's a poor delivery from Villa and Stoke try and break on the counter, but Bojan can't thread through Arnautovic as Villa defend superbly again.

  • Intricate play from Villa on the edge of the Stoke area. Grealish plays in Cissokho on the left and his driven cross deflects behind for a corner.

  • Alan Hutton shown a yellow card for time-wasting.

  • Villa keeping it in Stoke's half at the moment as Stoke struggle to get out. Villa take their time as frustrations grow inside the Britannia.

  • Another chance to deliver a dangerous ball from the left side for Stoke, and this time it's Pieters who's played in by Arnautovic. The Dutchman takes his time, but miskicks his cross and it flies straight out of play. Really poor delivery from Pieters.

  • Bojan picks up the ball on the left flank and tries to take on Senderos, which he does, but his delivery into the area is poor and it finds Vlaar who clears it out of danger.

  • Stoke opting for a more direct approach at the moment following the arrival of Crouch, who's proving to be a testing arrival to the Villa defence already. But so far, they're holding strong.

  • Whelan bursts into the Villa area and he tees it up for Arnautovic, 25 yards out, but his effort is poorly dragged wide. A poor afternoon so far for the Stoke winger.

  • Charles N'Zogbia comes off for Jack Grealish (Aston Villa)
