Outstanding Tonali Debut in the Premier League: Scores Goal, Newcastle Dominates Victory

Newcastle - Sandro Tonali made a splendid mark on his Premier League debut with Newcastle United. Tonali found the back of the net in a goal extravaganza as Newcastle triumphed over Aston Villa.

Tonali started in the match between Newcastle and Aston Villa at St. James' Park on Saturday (August 12) evening local time. The player recruited from AC Milan could have done better in making an impact.

Tonali opened the scoring for Newcastle in the sixth minute, neatly finishing a cross from Anthony Gordon with a volley.

In the process, Newcastle secured a 5-1 victory against Aston Villa. Other goals for Newcastle were netted by Alexander Isak (2 goals), Callum Wilson, and Harvey Barnes.

With his goal against Villa, Tonali also etched his name into a remarkable record. Tonali now holds the distinction of being the fastest debut goal scorer in the history of the Premier League for Newcastle.

"I just want to thank you all for the support today and the atmosphere in the stadium," Tonali said in a video uploaded on Newcastle's social media account.

"We're all overjoyed; I'm overjoyed with my first goal, and we're overjoyed with this victory." We just want to keep it going like this."

Newcastle United temporarily takes the top spot in the English Premier League standings, courtesy of their resounding victory over Aston Villa. The Magpies currently boast the best goal difference among the six teams that secured victories in the opening week of the 2023/2024 Premier League season.
