Aston Villa recorded a comfortable 3-0 victory against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium with the third goal coming from Republic of Ireland worldwide, Glenn Whelan.

A first-half goal from James Chester had Villa up and running before Tammy Abraham made it 2-0 to the visitors with less than 30 minutes remaining.
