Villa are kept off the top of the early Championship standings by Middlesbrough, who earned a 1-0 win over Birmingham City through Britt Assombalonga‘s goal, although the Smoggies have played a game more than the chasing pack.
Albion were 3-1 and then 4-2 ahead, but they were made to dig deep as Grant Hanley pulled another back eight minutes from the end in a match that eventually finished 4-3.
Elsewhere, Queens Park Rangers and Reading are the only pointless sides in the division, losing 2-1 to Sheffield United and 1-0 to Nottingham Forest respectively, while Stoke City are not faring much better on one point from two games.
Blackburn drew 0-0 with Millwall, meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday played out a 1-1 draw with Hull City, and Bolton Wanderers and Bristol City also contested an entertaining 2-2 stalemate in the North-West.
