Newcastle 4 – 0 A Villa

Aston Villa showed incoming manager Unai Emery the size of his job as they thrashed Newcastle 4-0 at St James’ Park.

As Aaron Danks stayed in the dugout, Emery wasn’t in the stands at Northeastern.

They made several good openings in the first half, including 10 minutes into stoppage time, before Ashley Young’s handball was duly denied by Lum Wilson from the penalty spot.

The second half saw a contrast as Newcastle scintillated and Villa came up against Calamits. From a corner on the training ground, Wilson nodded in a second before Jolinton added a third three minutes later to end the game as a contest.

Newcastle continued to cut their visitors at will with Wilson and Jacob Murphy both denied by the woodwork, while Miguel Almiron continued his brilliant effort with a superb curling effort from 25 yards.

Emery will still have the luxury of taking on a team outside the bottom 3 but will be concerned after their form of failure, with Newcastle’s win combined with another result opening up a three-point gap in all four.

How a second-half collapse brought Villa down to earth.

The last time Villa won a Premier League game at St James’ Park, Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer were both sent off for fighting – and the fact that both players have been retired for almost a decade is an indication of what an unhappy hunting ground it is. He confirmed.

But in last weekend’s 4-0 win at Brentford, Danks’ side came on with confidence, scoring Newcastle for most of the first half, and the lack of rhythm from both sides was not helped by two lengthy stoppages with Emiliano injured. Martinez, who was eventually replaced with a concussion after taking a knee to the face from Tyrone Mings.

Almiron created the only chance of note before the break when he teed up Kieran Trippier and drew a fine save from substitute goalkeeper Robin Olsen, but Young inadvertently snuffed out the Paraguayan’s next effort minutes later. work.

Wilson sent Olsson the wrong way from 12 yards as Gareth Southgate looked on from the stands before Villa even got into the game at the break – but they made it 11 minutes from the restart.

Miguel Almiron scored Newcastle's fourth goal.
Miguel Almiron’s goal was his sixth in as many games.

Early in the second half, Almiron’s run to support Trippier from a corner failed and after a quick one-two, Wilson took advantage of an equally poor mark to curl a cross into the far post.

Villa’s defense has collapsed ever since. Wilson drove to Mings and Ezri Konsa moments unchallenged after the ensuing scrum, and after an exchange of balls with Joe Wheelock, he fired his effort straight into the path of Jolinton into an empty net.

Almiro’s performances have seen him threaten another goal to add to his ever-growing collection, and he found himself midway through the second half, driving in from Wilson’s pass before slotting the ball past a helpless Olsson outside the box, his best work in Villa’s win last weekend. It was reversed.

Wilson could have been more denied by the woodwork and Mings’ final challenge, with Murphy himself inches away from adding a fifth.

Newcastle’s desire to add to their already impressive record speaks volumes for how far they have come, while Villa’s failure speaks volumes for how far they still have to go. New manager Emery has a job on his hands at Villa Park.
