Aston Villa team news:
Aston Villa’s high summer spending in hopes of retaining first league status after returning to the best-performing society has so far shown mixed results. At times, Villa played really well, they provided some good games, but then get with three tied defeats to step out of the relegation zone.
Before the break, Villa played a very bad game against the Wolves, in which they were completely nailed down. All they could do was score in the end of the match. Now, when they play against a team that may be their biggest rival in the fight for survival, they have to show a lot more. The quality of the team is not lacking and the question is when these players will play and get used to each other.
Probable lineup: Nyland; Guilbert, Engels, Mings, Targett; Nakamba, McGinn, Grealish; Ghazi, Trezeguet, Wesley
Newcastle team news:
Newcastle has been in great shape lately. With three victories in the last match of the match, they fled the danger zone. Now it is easier to breathe at St. James park. They celebrated against United, Bournemouth and West Ham, all of whom are high quality and strong teams.
It is clear that Newcastle will go full prey in this match as well. They also had draw with the Wolves (who outplayed Aston Villa), and their only defeat,a minimal one, was against Chelsea.
Probable lineup: Dubravka; Yedlin, Fernandez, Clark, Dummett, Willems; Almiron, Shelvey, Hayden, Saint-Maximin; Joelinton
Villa has lost in their last three league games, while Newcastle have tasted defeat in only one of their last five games, meaning the two are in totally different forms. Still, Villa has quality and defeat Newcastle after great results would be out of the question, so it is very possible for Steve Bruce to go into this match in order to remain undefeated.
