NAME: Aston Villa – Newcastle United

Traore, who replaced the injured Leon Bailly midway through the first half, struck immediately after the break and the red-hot Ollie Watkins scored the second goal in stoppage time to lift Villa into the Premier League’s top six.
Since Unai Emery’s first term in charge last November, only his former club Arsenal has more points and more wins in the top flight, with Villa climbing up the table with 11 league wins and 35 points to enter the European competition, having recorded 11 league wins and 35 points. will be harvested
Having won each of their last four games, they will be targeting a five-game winning streak for the first time this century. The last time John Gregory achieved such a feat, he was still in charge of Villa Park.
Emery could very easily sit in the opposition’s box at the weekend as he rejected an approach from new Newcastle owners while still at Villarreal in 2021, but his eventual move to the Midlands will help Villa close the gap on their north-east rivals. It dropped to 9 points in 3 digits.

Aston Villa vs Newcastle Playing XI
Aston Villa possible starting lineup: Martinez; Young, Konsa, Mings, Moreno; McGinn, Luiz; Traore, Buendia, Ramsey; Watkins
Newcastle United possible starting lineup: Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Joelinton; Almiron, Wilson, Murphy

Matty Cash (calf) also remains unavailable for the hosts, and the hosts will once again turn to the experienced Ashley Young to fill in at right-back.
If Bertrand Traore can’t come off the bench for Bailly, Villa could remain unchanged with Ollie Watkins leading the way for his 10th goal in 12 league appearances.
Emile Kraft, who has been out for a long time, is still unavailable for Newcastle United and Alain Saint-Maximin is now out for several weeks with a hamstring problem.
However, Miguel Almiron will be able to recover from a hip injury and Bruno Guimaraes will return to play through the pain of an ankle problem.
To move ahead of his counterpart Callum Wilson, Alexander Isak has scored in each of Newcastle’s last three away games, taking his tally to four goals in that span.
Aston Villa vs Newcastle Last Match Result
Aston Villa Premier League form: W D W W W W
Newcastle United Premier League form: L W W W W W
After a 4-0 win in October, Newcastle are targeting a first Premier League double against Aston Villa since the 2013-14 campaign. In fact, the Magpies have now won the team’s last two meetings in the top flight after seven previous games without a win.
Like his pole this week, Eddie Howe has led the team to 35 points in their last 17 games, and they are closing in on Champions League qualification.
Record signing Alexander Isaacs fired the winner last time out against Brentford, and the rivalry with former first-choice striker Callum Wilson seems to be doing the best for both of them at the moment.
Newcastle have now won each of their last five games, three of which have been home and away, and at Villa Park, they will be aiming for a fourth straight Premier League win for the first time in almost 27 years.
Undoubtedly, they have now recovered from their defeat at Wembley against Manchester United in the EFL Cup final and are lucky to be back in control as long as they finish in the top four. Tottenham is in 5th place 3 points behind and has a game to play.
