Aston Villa produced a superb second-half performance to blow away Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard's Derby 3-0 at Pride Park.

John McGinn, Tammy Abraham and Conor Hourihane sent Derby crashing to a first home defeat since August 11.

Derby had brought Fikayo Tomori back to the center of the house. Jonathan Kodjia headed over from six yards.

Tom Lawrence is out of the box before he gets away from the box. Abraham volleyed wide after some clever link-up play.

Tomori rescued Derby in the 23rd minute when Abraham spun away from him in the six-yard box.

Harry Wilson tested Orjan Nyland with a swerving shot from 25 yards before Adomah could not make the free kick count.

Scott Carson, who pushed the ball behind, said: "Who should have scored in the 33rd minute when Adomah crossed from the left and Abraham had a free header from eight yards.

Nyland saved Villa six minutes later when he first denied Jack Marriott and James Chester blocked Wilson's follow-up, the keeper tipped over the Wales forward's drive.

Kodjia bundled on Adomah cross wide before Lawrence lobbed over when clear from Carson's long kick.

McGinn's shot was blocked, but it was ruled out for eight and six minutes later.

Kodjia's low cross was met by McGinn but he touched the ball and Kodjia then fired Gallyish's pass.

Yannick Bolasie got behind the wheel for McGinn to head in from six yards.

Derby were caught again four minutes later when McGinn played the ball in the left and this time Abraham made no mistake from close range.

The game was over in the 84th minute when McGinn was fouled just outside the area and Hourihane curled the free-kick past Carson to put the seal on an impressive villa display.
