Aston Villa 2 – 0 Newcastle

Aston Villa 2 - 0 Newcastle

Danny Ings scored a superb acrobatic volley on his Aston Villa home debut as they recorded a deserved victory over Newcastle to bounce back from their opening-day defeat at Watford.

In the only moment of genuine quality in a scrappy first half, Ings sent an unstoppable bicycle kick into the corner of Freddie Woodman’s net after connecting perfectly with Tyrone Mings’ flick-on.

Villa made the brighter start to the second half and doubled their lead through Anwar El Ghazi’s penalty, awarded by referee David Coote after being instructed by VAR to go to his pitchside monitor to review a Jamaal Lascelles handball from Mings’ header.

Coote awarded Newcastle a penalty of their own following Emi Martinez’s late challenge on Callum Wilson, but VAR ruled that the 29-year-old striker had strayed offside in the build-up and the decision was overturned.

Wilson had missed a glorious opportunity to put the visitors ahead after just five minutes, curling wide as Villa’s players appealed for a foul by the 29-year-old on Mings.

The defeat was Newcastle’s 13th in the league in 2021 – only Southampton and Burnley have lost more among current top-flight teams.
