Newcastle got a valuable 3 points this afternoon at home to Aston Villa with a good goal after 37 minutes from – who else – Papiss Cisse who turned an excellent Daryl Janmaat low cross into the net for his 11th Premier League goal of the season in only 18 appearances.
Papiss Cisse scores after 37 minutes
But it took two great saves by Tim Krul from Benteke in the first half, and then Cleverly in the second half to keep us in the gamea and get a clean sheet afetr an agonziing 6 minutes of added time.
The result of this game was always more important than the display, and it’s a good 3 points for the lads – the second win in Carver’s nine games in charge – and it takes us up to 35 points, but we’re still in 11th place.
We are 4 points behind Stoke, who beat Hull 1-0 at home, and West Ham – who lost at home 3-1 today to Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace in the early game.
Let us know who you think was Newcastle’s best player this afternoon.
We’ll have a report out soon.
