Nobody likes losing, and Aston Villa did it in style in the Premier League on Saturday. Newcastle United applied one simple tactic to suffocate Villa's midfield and it was game over, a fact that should be of some concern to Paul Lambert. Villa went down to goals from Hatem Ben Arfa and Yoan Gouffran with only a Christian Benteke header in return, but the manner in which Villa attempted to find a second equaliser was disturbingly familiar.
Chris and Steve get down and dirty in the detail of the Newcastle game before trying to cheer themselves up with a positive preview of the next match. Villa visit Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday looking to repeat one of the standout results of the vital run-in last term.
