Harrison Reed, Aleksandar Mitrovic and a Tyrone Mings own goal saw Fulham romp to a 3-0 win over Aston Villa which saw Steven Gerrard sacked barely an hour after full-time.Villa were booed off at half and full-time by their frustrated sell-out travelling support at Craven Cottage, with chants of “We want Gerrard out” audible from the away end for large periods of the second half on a wretched night for the 10-man Villans in the capital – and by 10pm, they had got their wish.

Villa’s uphill task became harder still when Douglas Luiz saw red for a petulant off-the-ball headbutt on Mitrovic following a VAR review.Minutes later Mitrovic would beat Martinez from 12 yards after Matty Cash was penalised for a handball, and by the time Mings turned Neeskens Kebano’s cross past into his own goal with seven minutes left, a frustrating evening for the visiting fans had already turned toxic and left Gerrard out of a job after less than a year in charge at Villa Park
