·1-min read

Villarreal have moved up to third in La Liga with a 2-0 win over Valladolid on Monday.

Unai Emery's side took the lead on 21 minutes when Samu Chukwueze scored from Alfonso Pedraza's cross, and Pau Torres doubled the lead from Moi Gomez' corner after it was flicked on by Paco Alcacer.

Kike Perez and Marcos Andre both hit the frame of the goal in the second half but there was no way back into the game for the visitors who remain bottom of the table.

"I'm pleased for the goal because it's something we have trained," Torres said.

"We are working well and this was the clean sheet that we were looking for. We just need to start winning away from home."
