Ings Scores stunner to help Villa past Newcastle

Danny Ings scored a stunning bicycle kick on his home debut to help Aston Villa to a 2-0 win over Newcastle at Villa Park.

Callum Wilson missed a clear chance one on one for Newcastle in the opening minutes, before the only real piece of quality in the first half came in stoppage time as Ings’ magnificent acrobatic effort put Villa ahead (45+3), his second goal in as many games for the club.

Villa doubled their lead after the break through Anwar El Ghazi’s penalty (62), awarded after a VAR intervention for Jamaal Lascelles’ handball from a Tyrone Mings’ header.

VAR continued to be Villa’s best friend in the second half as a penalty awarded for Emi Martinez’s foul on Wilson was overturned for a marginal offside call on the striker, but Villa saw the game out comfortably for their first points of the season.

It wasn’t a happy return to Villa Park for Steve Bruce, whose side sit 19th without a point from their opening two games, and six goals conceded
