‘Feeling on top of the world’ - The Newcastle United dressing room view from huge Aston Villa win

Newcastle United players reacted to the 1-0 victory over Aston Villa on social media.

In the words of Joe Willock after Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Aston Villa, momentum is building at Newcastle United.

The victory against Steven Gerrard’s Villa was the Magpies' third in a row to lift the club four points above the Premier League relegation zone.

Who would have thought that a few games ago when Eddie Howe’s side were held to a disappointing draw with Watford at St James’ Park?

But since then, Newcastle have beaten Leeds United, Everton and Villa which has seen the mood change significantly on Tyneside.

That includes the United dressing room as well - and here’s how the players in it reacted to the win over Villa on social media:

Kieran Trippier - ‘That winning feeling’

Fabian Schar - ‘Love it’

Bruno Guimaraes - ‘Well done guys’

Ryan Fraser - ‘Feeling on top of the world’

Joe Willock - ‘Momentum’s building’

Joelinton - ‘We keep going’

“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure .. +3 , we keep going.”

Allan Saint-Maximin - ‘WWW’

Chris Wood - ‘Unbelievable heart and character’
