  • Key Stat

  • Expert Verdict

    Expert Verdict:
    Newcastle’s dismal recent form showed no sign of stopping when they were comfortably beaten by Arsenal last time out. Steve Bruce is under serious pressure and Aston Villa can take full advantage as they bid to bounce back to winning ways.

Aston Villa

Our prediction

Aston Villa

In just their second match back after their long, enforced break, Aston Villa will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host Newcastle United at Villa Park. Dean Smith’s side are looking for their first win since Boxing Day, and only their second victory at Villa Park since thrashing Liverpool 7-2 back in October. Newcastle’s poor form means the hosts are favourites, however, for a game which takes place on Saturday January 23 and gets underway at 20:00 local time.

Aston Villa vs Newcastle United Prediction

Aston Villa are in need of a win, as they return to action, and while Newcastle are even more desperate it is the hosts who are favourites. Newcastle’s poor goalscoring form is the biggest reason they are so hard to back, despite Steve Bruce’s bullish talk.

Correct score prediction: Aston Villa 1-0 Newcastle United
