WHAT HAPPENED? Aston Villa drew 1-1 with Brentford in the Premier League on Saturday, as midfielder Douglas Luiz scored a late equaliser in the 87th minute. With Luiz's goal, Villa have scored in all of the 19 games they have played under Emery, thus breaking the record for the longest consecutive scoring run any team has had from the start of a manager's tenure in Premier League history.
