In the 14th minute, defender Tommy Elphick leveled the scoreline after converting Jack Grealish’s corner into the back of the net.

Hull City tried to restore their lead, however, the Villans maintained composure and defensive shape, ending the first-half 1-1.

20 minutes before full-time, the visitors took the lead through Ahmed Elmohamady after he unleashed a powerful low shot from the edge of the box, scoring his first goal since December 2015 against his former club.

Following the win, Villa earned their first three points of the campaign and are set to face Sam Morsy’s Wigan, who won their opening game against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, the 11th of August.
