General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 A long ball up into the area misses everybody and goes through behind Tim Krul's goal. That could be it for Villa.
90' +2 Villa are starting to run out of ideas a bit here. As Newcastle have dropped deeper and deeper, the pace of Agbonlahor has been negated, and the long hoofs forward to Benteke have not bought must luck.
90' Five minutes of added time will be played.
89' There is another scramble after a ball is lofted into the area. Ron Vlaar is up from the back, and he has a shot which is deflected, before Benteke also lashes a shot straight at an eager defender. Vernon Anita eventually hacks clear.
88' Shola Ameobi gets yellow.
Villa have gone a little more route one recently, with diagonal balls from both Lowton and Baker aimed for Benteke. They are not getting much change out of Taylor and Coloccini just yet, however.
86' There's an almighty goalmouth scramble in the Newcastle area, with the ball flying off every body part imaginable. In the end through, it is cleared out to Lowton whose resultant cross in is easily gathered by Krul.
85' Villa go close from a route-one effort. Guzan launches a ball forward and his hoof is missed by all the defenders and seems to confuse Benteke, who fails to get a proper connection.
84' Villa deserve a second goal on their second half showing, but with time running out, they may not quite manage it.
83' Newcastle are creating problems for themselves with some very frantic defending which is bordering on wild panic. Villa go close from a corner, but Nathan Baker's header is blocked by the bodies of several desperate defenders.
81' I have to agree with Nick there, Sissoko has had an excellent game, and he looks like he can add real quality to this Newcastle team.
