Saints grab late equaliser at Villa

  • Villa without win since mid-September
  • Lowest league attendance at Villa Park in 15 years
  • Agbonlahor goal first conceded by Saints in 439 mins
  • Only five shots on target in whole game
Nathaniel Clyne denied Aston Villa a much-needed win as his late goal rescued a point for a disappointing Southampton side.
The England right-back buried Ryan Bertrand's cross to reduce the gap on leaders Chelsea to six points.
Villa went ahead when Gabriel Agbonlahor took advantage of an error of judgement from Saints goalkeeper Fraser Forster to score.
But Saints' pressure finally told when Clyne side-footed home from 12 yards.
Ronald Koeman's side dominated possession - completing 229 passes more than the hosts - and undoubtedly deserved a share of the spoils.
But with their next three games coming against Manchester City,Arsenal and Manchester United, Koeman will be concerned at the lack of quality in the final third on display from his side against Villa's packed defence.
