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.

Sweet.
