Aston Villa's Trezeguet
The Egyptian becomes the first Villan to score in three consecutive English top-flight starts in over four years
Mahmoud "Trezeguet" Hassan’s goal in Aston Villa’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on Wednesday evening means he becomes the second Villan to score in three consecutive Premier League starts.

With the Blues leading at Stamford Bridge thanks to Tammy Abraham’s effort, Trezeguet rounded off a fine move to put Dean Smith’s side level before the break.

Thanks to that strike, the former Kasimpasa midfielder now takes his place in Aston Villa history alongside Tom Cleverly, who had achieved the feat in May 2015.

Incidentally, he was assisted by compatriot Ahmed El Mohamady – and that became the first-ever English top-flight goal to be scored and assisted by Egyptians.

He was replaced by Diogo Jota in the 76th minute as his side suffered their eighth defeat of the season.

Smith’s men are 15th in the English elite division log with 15 points from 15 appearances and they host high-flying Leicester City on Sunday.
