    Time:90'
    • Newcastle United
    • Aston Villa
    • 90+4' There's the final whistle! Andy Carroll is off to a dream start - a hat-trick! And Villa in total disarray.
    • 90+3' GOAL!! HAT-TRICK CARROLL!!! He collects Xisco's through-ball and slots into the left corner!! It's his first hat-trick!
    • 90+2' The game has gone pretty dead. Villa look totally crestfallen.
    • 90' Three minutes of stoppage time to be played.
    • 89' Habib Beye comes on for Villa, and the former Toon man gets a few boos from the Newcastle fans.
    • 87' GOAL!!! FIVE!! Kevin Nolan grabs his second!! Villa fail to clear the corner, Nolan reacts quickest and hooks the ball in from close range!
    • 86' Andy Carroll has just been named man of the match by the tannoy announcer. Fair enough. He's been superb.
    • 85' Heskey buys a Villa corner off Coloccini, Young to take it on the left side.
    • 83' Stephen Ireland sends a 25-yard shot into orbit, as the visiting fans continue to file out of the ground.
    • 82' Xisco leads the Newcastle counter-attack, but misplaces a pass to Taylor wide on the right.
    • 80' Xisco replaces Jonas Gutierrez. He's good, Xisco, I've seen him on YouTube.
    • 79' Taylor tries to curl the free-kick into the top-right corner, but sends it a yard wide.
    • 78' Yellow card Reo-Coker for a clumsy tackle on Gutierrez right at the edge of the Villa box.
    • 78' Ashley Young tries to pick out Ireland with a raking through ball which bounces through to Harper.
    • 77' Another Newcastle corner comes into the box, and Petrov sends a nervy defensive header behind for another corner.
    • 76' Shola Ameobi and Ryan Taylor come on for Alan Smith and Wayne Routledge.
    • 74' CARROLL!!! Hits an instinctive shot from close range but Friedel denies him his hat-trick!
    • 72' Ireland tries to shift into space and shoots, but Perch blocks it.
    • 71' Stephen Warnock is down with an injury to his right ankle. He is up and limps off for a further inspection.
    • 70' This time Villa clear, courtesy of a Dunne header.
    • 69' Routledge brought down by Clark and immediately Villa are under more pressure.
    • 67' GOAL!!! TWO FOR CARROLL, FOUR FOR NEWCASTLE!!! The ball comes back into the box, loops into the air and Carroll smashes the dropping ball in left-footed!
    • 67' Barton delivers a corner from the right... half-cleared by Villa.
    • 65' There's the change - Reo-Coker for Carew. Is Kevin McDonald subbing his way out of a job here?
    • 64' Smith booked - harshly - for going in a bit late on Heskey.
    • 63' Oh, make it stop! Apparently Villa are about to bring Nigel Reo-Coker on for John Carew...
    • 62' Great pace from Routledge, who speeds past two defenders and gets a low shot away.. straight at Friedel.
    • 61' Heskey receives the ball on the right and duly clogs it out for a throw.
    • 60' Routledge scampers through the middle and it takes a decent Dunne tackle to snuff out the danger, albeit at the expense of a corner.
    • 59' Oh dear lord, it looks like Heskey will play on the right wing...
    • 58' Aston Villa: Marc Albrighton comes off to be replaced by Heskey, who is booed for his role in England's World Cup shambles.
    • 57' Without wanting to sound like an old geezer, the roof is casting a very distracting shadow across the pitch - the roof is semi-see-through making for a sort of grid effect.
    • 55' Kevin McDonald taking a leaf out of Fabio Capello's book - Emile Heskey is limbering up and getting ready to come on.
    • 54' Downing swings the free-kick in from the Villa right but Smith heads clear.
    • 53' Gutierrez and Jose Enrique double team Albrighton... free-kick to Villa.
    • 52' Played long for Nolan, who is flagged offside.
    • 51' Now Ashley Young is caught offside. He's not a happy boy.
    • 49' Ashley Young protests furiously after a goal kick is awarded - Young said the ball went off Mike Williamson, but the replay shows he is clearly wrong.
    • 48' Carroll tries a low long shot but it is straight at Friedel.
    • 47' Newcastle immediately on the front foot as Carroll brushes Luke Young aside to reach a long ball down the left channel.
    • 46' Second half under way, with Newcastle kicking off.
    • 45+3' This Premier League lark is pretty easy, no? St James' Park could hardly have wished for a better first half.
    • 45+2' Downing crosses from the Villa left, but they have nobody attacking the six yard box.
    • 45+1' Two minutes of stoppage time to be played.
    • 45' Neat trick from Downing to keep the ball in by playing it off the corner flag, but he succeeds only in giving the ball to Jose Enrique.
    • 44' Villa win a free-kick out on the right, Downing to swing it in.
    • 42' This atrocious defensive display from Villa will surely hasten the end of Kevin McDonald's reign as caretaker manager.
    • 41' Over on Twitter, the Daily Telegraph's Henry Winter has said it: 'Expect the "Carroll for England" bandwagon to start rolling after this barnstorming display for #NUFC against Aston Villa.' Please, let's spare the boy.
    • 40' Ireland not having the best debut. He commits an obvious foul on Gutierrez, but Barton wastes the free-kick.
    • 39' Yellow card Perch, who clears out Warnock jumping for a high ball.
    • 37' Nolan races through and has Smith inside him... Smith is tripped off the ball, Nolan goes himself and Friedel saves! But Newcastle are not happy with what they deem a cynical off-the-ball challenge by Dunne!
    • 36' Newcastle lead by five goal attempts to two, but the scoreline is all that matters.
    • 35' Villa are all over the place defensively as Perch gets forward down the right but mis-hits his cross.
    • 34' GOAL!!! ANDY CARROLL!!! Williamson heads the corner back across goal, Dunne misses his kick and Carroll fires a low left-foot shot into the net! 3-0!
    • 33' Corner for Newcastle, who are in full flow right now. They are back with a bang.
    • 31' GOAL!!! TWO FOR NEWCASTLE!! Kevin Nolan!! Carroll rises high to head down a cross at the far post. Nolan sees his first header parried by Friedel but nods in the rebound!
    • 30' Newcastle starting to build up a head of steam here - a very impressive 20-minute spell from the Geordies.
    • 28' Friedel flaps at a corner, but he is adjudged to have been fouled by Gutierrez jumping for it.
    • 27' Poor free-kick from Barton - by the way, the goal was his first in the Premier League since October 2008, when he rifled in a penalty against West Brom.
    • 26' Smith tackles the dawdling Ireland, then the Villa man repays the compliment - without getting the ball. Free-kick Newcastle, Barton stands over it.
    • 25' Ashley Young is played clean through and puts the ball in the net, but referee Atkinson stops play! For what? He was definitely not offside and there was no flag. Might it have been for a handball? Villa feeling aggrieved.
    • 24' Gutierrez drives inside from the left but ignores the run of Routledge and dribbles down a blind alley.
    • 23' Sol Campbell is sitting in the stands next to Steve Stone. No word on how his fitness drive is coming along.
    • 22' Long ball over the top for Albrighton to chase... Jose Enrique chases back and does well to collect and bring it clear. Definitely more goals in this.
    • 20' Stewart Downing lets fly from 25 yards and drags it a couple of yards wide to the right of Harper's goal.
    • 19' Yellow card Barton! He goes in late and high on Petrov and that's a booking.
    • 18' Newcastle are playing a high line and they look vulnerable - Villa have plenty of pace in attack.
    • 17' Looks like handball from Gutierrez, who then has a shot blocked.
    • 16' Kevin McDonald looks somewhat crestfallen, and well he might. Villa have paid the price for that Carew miss...
    • 15' Ashley Young claims he has been elbowed, but referee Martin Atkinson sees nothing wrong. A bit of bad blood festering.
    • 13' What a turnaround in the space of four minutes! Absolutely fantastic goal from Barton, who has announced his return to the big stage.
    • 12' GOAL!!! JOEY BARTON SCORES A SCREAMER!! He fires into the top right corner from 25 yards! Wonderful strike.
    • 11' Carew is released down the right flank but he has little support and Coloccini robs him.
    • 10' CAREW MISSES!!! He absolutely blazes it over the bar! Atrocious penalty by John Carew.
    • 9' PENALTY VILLA!! Petrov springs Ashley Young beyond the last man, and Harper comes out and brings him down!! Stone-waller!
    • 7' Routledge attempts to cross from the right, but his cross is blocked by Luke Young.
    • 6' Good jump by Carroll to meet a long ball... but he heads it out of play.
    • 5' One-two between Carew and Young, but the Norwegian's final ball is poor.
    • 3' Knocked forward towards Nolan, who is adjudged to have fouled Clark...
    • 2' Early raid down the right from Albrighton, who is stopped in his tracks by Jose Enrique.
    • 1' Game on! Villa kick off, playing from left to right. Both clubs wearing their home shirts, which is always nice to see.
    • 13:28 Got to love a bit of 'Local Hero' as the teams come out. A couple of minutes to game time.
    • 13:27 Didn't know this: Stephen Ireland is wearing the number nine shirt for Villa...
    • 13:25 Chris Hughton speaking to ESPN: "It's about lifting the crowd. We have a fantastic crowd but they want to see a sprited team." Seriously, that's the most interesting thing he said.
    • 13:20 Villa new boy Stephen Ireland has defended his attitude claiming he is not a bad lad. Ireland: I'm alright really
    • 13:15 On to some Villa news, and US coach Bob Bradley has told BBC Sportsweek he would be "honoured" to be considered for the Aston Villa manager's job. Bradley interested in Villa job
    • 13:10 Meanwhile Newcastle are closing on the signing of Ivory Coast midfielder Cheik Tiote. Full story
    • 13:05 Lionel Messi reckons one Newcastle player is as good as Wayne Rooney. A clue: it's not Joey Barton. Who is it?
    • 13:00 There is only a total of eight Premier League matches of experience between the two managers today - Newcastle's Chris Hughton (4 matches) and Villa caretaker manager Kevin MacDonald (4 matches).
    • 13:00 Newcastle United and Aston Villa have met 142 times in the league. Newcastle have won 62, Aston Villa 50 and there have been 30 draws.
    • 12:55 So Newcastle are unchanged from the side that lost 3-0 at Old Trafford on Monday. Aston Villa show just one change - new boy Stephen Ireland replaces James Milner after they swapped clubs this week.
