Aston Villa striker Jordan Ayew scored a superb second-half goal to earn a point for Remi Garde’s side at Newcastle on Saturday.
The goal is the striker’s fourth in as many as eight matches so far and is quite impressive for a striker who is finding his form in the Premier League. He had gone seven games without scoring at the start of the season.
The Ghanaian marksman drove a curling one into the top corner from inside the area to bring his team at par with Newcastle who had shot into the lead through a Fabricio Coloccini's close-range opener.
Newcastle’s Georginio Wijnaldum would be counting his woefulness in front of goal by now as he wasted some scoring chances. His partner-in-crime at the Villa side was Rudy Gestede who also mis-fired some equally good scoring chances as well.
Steve McCLaren’s Newcastle looked brilliant before this game with back-to-back victories against Liverpool and Tottenham but lacked the potency to break Villa down for long periods. Even when they did once, it was from a defensive lapse in concentration from a corner-kick which saw an unmarked Coloccini scoring.
The Aston Villa striker, Jordan Ayew went home as the man of the match at the end of the game with an individual brilliance on the chart card as scoring one goal from the two chances that fell to him and assisting one which should have been scored by Gestede.
