Conor Hourihane helps Aston Villa beat Newcastle with clever free kicks

Aston Villa allegedly brushed aside its recent poor results in order to beat Newcastle United 2-0 at home on Monday and has created some breathing space above the Premier League drop zone as Ireland midfielder Conor Hourihane could score and set up another goal with a couple of clever free kicks.

Hourihane did everything to put Villa ahead in the 32nd minute, then he tapped a dead ball to Jack Grealish and then unleashed a thumping shot which left goalkeeper Martin Dubravka bewildered.

Soon Villa could earn another dangerous set piece and once again Hourihane assumed responsibility, fired the ball into the heart of the penalty area and suddenly Anwar El Ghazi arrived to knock the ball into the roof of the net from close range in the 36th.

In a statement, Hourihane said, “It was important to get a good result because they haven’t been great in the past few games.”
