Home sweet home for Aston Villa with 13th straight victory

BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) - Aston Villa registered its 13th straight home win in the Premier League as Unai Emery's team beat Fulham 3-1 on Sunday.

Villa was two goals up at the break following Antonee Robinson's own-goal in the 27th and a strike from skipper John McGinn in the 42nd.

Fulham came close early in the second half when Emiliano Martinez tipped Raul Jimenez's shot against a post before Ollie Watkins added a third for the hosts with a 64th-minute finish.

Jimenez pulled a goal back for the visitors in the 70th, but Villa was not to be denied as it equaled its post-war club record for successive top-flight home victories, matching the 13 in a row achieved in 1983.

Emery's side has scored at least three times in each of the Villa Park wins this season, with a total of 23 goals across the six games.

It was also a return to winning ways in the league after last Sunday's 2-0 loss at Nottingham Forest though Villa has since defeated AZ Alkmaar 2-1 at home in the Europa Conference League.

Fifth-place Villa is a point outside the top four. Marco Silva's Fulham is 16th after its winless run in the league extended to a fourth game.
