Pic Special: Newcastle 1 Aston Villa 1

United had to settle for a point at home against Aston Villa on Sunday, but a frustrating game was lit up by a moment of brilliance from Hatem Ben Arfa.

The French international forward cancelled out Ciaran Clark's first half header with a stunning long range effort after the break for a 1-1 draw.

It was real 'I was there' moment from Ben Arfa, who took it upon himself to claw Newcastle back into the contest.

They could have gone on to win it, but Demba Ba and Yohan Cabaye both spurned chances - with the latter's injury-time free-kick brilliantly clawed away by Villa keeper Brad Guzan.
