Well what a shock result and very much under reported.
Swans hammered Villa 0-3 in the FA Cup after losing both home and away league matches, the most recent being on Boxing Day at the Liberty 0-1, so this was very much revenge time.
Villa were missing leading scorer, loanee Tammy Abraham, rumoured to be on his way to Wolves.
Swans were missing their leading scorer Oli McBurnie due to sickness.
Deputising for McBurnie, Baker-Richardson netted after only two minutes and this set the pattern for the whole match as Villa were outplayed.
Dyer made it 0-2 just after half time, and Fulton scored on 78 to seal the win and send the Jack Army home happy.
With 54% possession and 14 shots on goal, seven of which were on target, the 30k crowd were stunned to silence.
