7 min: Villa attack down the left. Alex Moreno skips past Kieran Trippier and cuts inside. His cross is cleared.

5 min: Anthony Gordon and Ashley Young contest a fifty-fifty ball out by the far touchline and the ball goes out for a Villa throw-in.

4 min: In a central position, Buendia tries to play Watkins in behind again but can’t get enough pace on his ball around the corner towards the edge of the penalty area.

2 min: That’s some let-off for Newcastle in these very early stages. Such is the excellent form Watkins finds himself these days, you’d have fancied him to score. He wasn’t far away.

1 min: With less than 30 seconds gone, Ollie Watkins is played in behind Sven Botman by a long ball from Douglas Luiz. He holds off the Newcastle defender, rolls the ball past Nick Pope and on to the foot of the post. What a chance that was!
