    Aston Villa leads 2-0, and it's the first time in over a year that Aston Villa scored at least 2 goals in consecutive Premier League games. The last time was 18 January 2014 against Liverpool and 29 January 2014 against West Bromwich Albion.

    Edit: Aston Villa leads 4-0 which is their most goals in a Premier League game since 2 March 2014 against now-relegated Norwich City. It's Aston Villa's most goals in an away Premier League game since a 4-0 win on 26 October 2008 at Wigan Athletic. The last time Aston Villa scored 5 or more goals in an away Premier League game was a 6-0 win on 12 April 2008 at Derby County.

    Edit: Agbonlahor scored the second and third goals. Benteke scored the first and fourth goals.

    It ended 4-0 and is in FIFA's Week in Numbers:

    "4 goals were scored by Aston Villa in the space of 44 first-half minutes at Sunderland on Saturday. Remarkable enough, this feat is all the more stunning for the fact that it equalled the team's tally for their 14 previous away matches this season - 1260 minutes in all. Indeed, 21 per cent of the erstwhile low-scoring Villans' English Premier League 2014/15 haul arrived in this single, devastating half of football. It was the first time Sunderland had ever conceded four goals in the first half since the Premier League's inception and led to the dismissal of their manager, Gus Poyet. The match also witnessed Villa substitute Rushian Hepburn-Murphy, aged 16 years and 176 days, become the fourth-youngest player to turn out in the division. The record belongs to Matthew Briggs, who was 111 days Murphy's junior when he turned out for Fulham in 2007."
