Aston Villa rallied from a two-goal deficit with second-half goals from Karim El Ahmadi and Ashley Westwood to secure a 2-2 draw at West Brom on Monday in a Premier League midlands derby.

Shane Long gave West Brom a 2-0 lead with a third-minute strike and chip over Brad Guzan in the 11th.

Stephane Sessegnon missed a chance to extend the lead and the Albion maintained control until halftime.

Villa manager Paul Lambert made three changes 12 minutes into the second half, sending Andreas Weimann, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Fabian Delph into action and it paid off 10 minutes later when El Ahmadi volleyed in from Weimann's header.

In the 76th, Agbonlahor's cross was only cleared by Goran Popov's header as far as Westwood, who equalised with a long-range swerving shot.
