ON THIS DAY

Villa win only their sixth game in eighteen matches in the most odd of circumstances with Newcastle imploding in style. Villa not only got three points but also a welcome respite from the media attention attracted to the ongoing soap opera behind the scenes.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe were the best team by a mile and we deserved to win. We won two penalties because we created clear situations and the ref had no choice. โ€œIt was nice to get all our players fit. Juan Pablo Angel and Darius Vassell have not played together this season and they were big pluses for us. โ€œThey had a disputed penalty but itโ€™s the only thing they can argue about.โ€ David Oโ€™Leary.
