Danny Ings produced an early ‘goal of the season contender’ with a sensational bicycle kick goal against Newcastle United.
It was a reasonably comfortable win for Aston Villa as they defeated Newcastle 2-0 after Anwar El Ghazi added a second from the spot in the second half.
Though, it was Danny Ings’ overhead kick goal that made all the headlines.
The new signing has kicked off his tenure at Aston Villa in style after leaving Southampton in the summer. Ings scored his second goal in as many games as he sent Villa Park into rapture on the cusp of half-time.
One of the most underrated strikers in the Premier League, the former Liverpool striker met Tyrone Mings’ flick from Cash’s long-throw with aplomb to put his side ahead.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Danny Ings scoring with a magnificent acrobatic effort on his home debut for Aston Villa.

That’s extremely well put

Two kings bringing the house down putting defenses on strings
A monumental goal
Just seen the Ings goal, and not to over exaggerate, but I think he might be the best player on the planet. #utv— Jack (@jacckkooo1) August 21, 2021
An incredible Jack Grealish replacement
Villa lost a supremely talented player in Grealish. Prob one of my favs to watch in recent times, if not my fav.— The Editor | new account (@FPLEditor2) August 21, 2021
But to get Danny Ings in for £30m of that £100m, a player that when fit will contribute to 20+ premier league goals a season, is such an incredible outcome for them🔥
