Watkins Inter Aston Villa Sinks Newcastle

Aston Villa beat Newcastle United 2-0 in the English Premier League.

JAKARTA - Aston Villa striker Ellie Watkins scored her first goal in the English Premier League in the last 10 matches when she led her team to a 2-0 win over Newcastle United at Villa Park, Sunday (24/1) in the morning WIB. The result of this match propelled Villa two places to ninth after collecting 29 points from 17 matches

In contrast, Newcastle fell one place to number 16 with a collection of 19 points from 19 matches. The Toon Army has lost its fourth consecutive year since the turn of the year.

Villa appeared pressing from the start of the match. Watkins then put them ahead in the 13th minute when he beat visitors goalkeeper Karl Darlow with his horn after Fabian Schaer failed to clear Matt Targett's low cross from the left.

Watkins made another goal attempt but was ruled out for offside. Bertrand Traore then made it 2-0 in the 42nd minute after beating Darlow with a perfect first-time shot thanks to a superb assist from Jack Grealish.

Villa kept pressing after the break and Darlow thwarted another Watkins effort. Ross Barkley came close to scoring with his heel, as did Grealish who shot just wide of the net.

This defeat made Newcastle winless in 10 consecutive matches in all competitions. This also puts more pressure on coach Steve Bruce.
