Aston Villa have ended their 12-game winless run against Newcastle in the league, with this their first victory against the Magpies since a 1-0 win in April 2011 when we were relegated with that Damien Duff own goal.

But let's not forget Monday evenings are never catch us on a good day. This was our 13th defeat in the last 16 times we have been on Monday evening TV ...  failing to score in 11 of those matches.

Newcastle conceded two goals in a league game against Aston Villa for the first time since February 2008 (a 4-1 defeat) – indeed, Villa scored as many goals tonight (2) as they managed in their previous seven encounters against the Magpies.

Newcastle's Miguel Almiron has had more shots without scoring than any other player in the Premier League this season (22) – indeed, the Paraguayan is still yet to score his first goal (41 shots) or register his first assist (22 chances created) in the competition.
