Newcastle United supporters heaped praise on Aston Villa duo Jack Grealish and Ross Barkley during their side’s 2-0 defeat on Saturday night.

Both players were influential in Villa securing all three points as Newcastle slumped to another defeat.

Whilst the Newcastle fans vent their anger towards Steve Bruce, they were impressed with what they saw from Villa’s expert ball-carriers and creative sparks.

Grealish supplied the assist for Villa’s second goal as his link-up with Bertrand Traore resulted in the winger hitting his first time shot on the underside of the bar before it hit the back of the net.

As always Grealish and Barkley dictated the flow of the game as the Magpies didn’t provide any real threat.

Some of the Newcastle fans pointed out the quality Villa have on their books compared to their side who are hovering above the relegation zone.

There could be the possibility that both Grealish and Barkley could be heading to the Euros with England this summer, but at the very least, one of them should be on that plane given their quality.

Nonetheless, here is a selection of Newcastle fans reacting to Barkley and Grealish’s performance from last night:
