  • WHAT A GOAL! It's absolutely incredible by Ings! Cash goes long with the throw-in on the right and Mings gets in front of Fernandez to flick it on at the near post. Ings is unmarked in the middle and he goes for the overhead kick. Woodman is stranded on his goal line and it nestles into the bottom corner. 1-0 Villa!

  • Murphy loses the ball and he pulls back Ramsey to stop him from breaking away with it. It's a blatant tug and the referee goes straight to his pocket for the yellow card.

  • EL GHAZI SCORES! He had to wait a while to take the spot-kick, but he confidently fires it into the bottom-left corner. He only takes a short run-up and Woodman dives the wrong way, giving himself no chance of saving it. 2-0 Villa!

  • Newcastle's second change of the game is an attacking one which will bring a change in shape to a back four. Fernandez is the defender making way, with Joelinton on in his place.
