Andy Carroll announced his arrival as a genuine Barclays Premier League striker as Newcastle hammered Aston Villa 6-0.

The 21-year-old Geordie plundered a hat-trick to build upon the lead given to his side by Joey Barton's 12th-minute piledriver and Kevin Nolan's effort 13 minutes before the break, Nolan adding his second before Carroll completed his treble at the death.

Villa might have taken the lead themselves, but John Carew squandered a 10th-minute penalty and they simply fell apart as the Magpies made the most of their let-off.
