Newcastle United plays host to Aston Villa at St James's Park on Wednesday with the visitors desperately searching for points to claw themselves out of the Premier League relegation zone.

Villa were fortunate to claim a point in the first game of the Premier League restart courtesy of a 0-0 draw with Sheffield United, who Newcastle subsequently beat 3-0 at the weekend. Will that be an indication of what to expect?

Newcastle Form


In their last match, Newcastle recorded a 3-0 win against Sheffield United and have now earned 13 points from their last 10 Premier League matches. It is a run that has left Steve Bruce's side in 13th place and all but assured of being dragged into the relegation fight. 

Newcastle Team News


Newcastle are without injured Jetro Willems and have doubts over brothers Sean Longstaff and Matty Longstaff.

Aston Villa Form


Villa restarted their season with a 0-0 draw at home to Sheffield United, but it was a controversial decision over whether the ball has crossed the line that saw them claim the point. Dean Smith's side then suffered a 2-1 loss at Chelsea and sit second from bottom after a run of just 8 points from the last 10 league matches.

Aston Villa Team News 


Wesley, Bjorn Engels and Tom Heaton are unavailable for Villa, who will also make a late call on Frederic Guilbert.
