Marvelous Nakamba’s Aston Villa won 2-0 over Newcastle United in a Premier League match played at Villa Park on Monday night.
However, Nakamba was benched for the entirety of the match as his place in the middle of the park was handed to Jack Grealish who had been out of the side due to an injury.
Conor Hourihane’s curled free-kick in the 32nd minute gave Villa the lead.
Hourihane delivered another set-piece from almost a similar position to set up Anwar El Ghazi to finish from close range four minutes later.
The win takes Villa up to 15th place, with 14 points after 13 games.
