Newcastle 2 Aston Villa 0 – Monday 20 February 2017 8pm
A scrappy game came to life with Newcastle’s goal just before half-time.
A much better second half with plenty of incident.
Watch these official highlights of Monday’s match.
Only one save to make all night but brilliant from Karl Darlow.
It all got a bit lost but wasn’t it an obvious penalty at 2-0 up?
Best of all though, enjoy pantomime villain Henri Lansbury putting the ball into his own net.
