Aston Villa vs Newcastle Match Analysis and Prediction

Aston Villa gets back into Premier League action at home for the first time since Boxing Day when they face off against Newcastle. The match schedules for Saturday at Villa Park with kickoff at 11 pm.

Even though the weekend remains dedicated to FA Cup fixtures in the top flight, both teams face off in a rescheduled fixture. Both sides will be looking to overturn their fortunes in league with three vital points up for grabs.

After no home action since Boxing Day at Villa Park due to a coronavirus outbreak, it will be a breath of fresh air. However, it will come without Dean Smith on the touchline after getting a one-match ban for foul language used against an official following their 2-0 loss to Manchester City.

Both Newcastle and Aston Villa have been several hit with the coronavirus outbreak on both camps. Most of the players will undoubtedly continue recovering from the after-effects of coronavirus.

Dean Smith will switch attention from the table standings given he has three games in hand. A win this Saturday will catapult the side to eight on the table. It will be above the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Magpies are going through a tough patch with their goals dried up after two recent defeats to Arsenal in the FA Cup and league.
