Aston Villa v Newcastle Utd – September 14th 2013

Hatem Ben Arfa celebrates opening the scoring at Villa Park

France midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa scored one and set up another as Newcastle United beat Aston Villa at Villa Park.

Ben Arfa opened the scoring after some excellent work from on-loan Loic Remy, who was making his first start.

Christian Benteke equalised after the break when he powered home a corner from Ashley Westwood.

Yoan Gouffran secured victory for the visitors when he reacted quickest after Villa keeper Brad Guzan could only parry Ben Arfa’s long-range effort.

The win was Newcastle’s second of the season and came just days after managerAlan Pardew put out a statement about the club’s failure to add to their squad before the transfer window closed.

The only player brought in by the club this summer was Remy, who has had an immediate impact since signing on a season-long loan from Queens Park Rangers.

He set up Ben Arfa for the only goal of the game as Newcastle beat Fulham last time out and he again combined with his fellow Frenchman to open the scoring.
