Newcastle vs Aston Villa Match Analysis and Prediction

Relegation-threatened Newcastle United will be looking for their first victory in over a month when they continue their Premier League campaign against Aston Villa. The match schedules for Friday at St. James Park, with kickoff at 11 pm.

Newcastle is currently 16th on the table after drawing 0-0 with West Brom in their last outing while one point off the red line. On the other hand, Villa currently occupies the ninth position in England’s top flight.

Newcastle is growing exceedingly weary of Fulham with their excellent form of late. The Magpies are only one point off the relegation zone, albeit with a game in hand on the Cottagers. Steve Bruce’s side is only one point ahead of Brighton.

The side is on a four winless streak in the Premier League, losing to Chelsea and Manchester United. This is in addition to drawing with Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Bromwich, since a home success over Southampton.

There is no downplaying the importance of Friday’s match as a poor result could see Newcastle end the week in the relegation zone. The side has huge fixtures against Brighton and Burnley to either side of a home game against Tottenham at the start of April.

Aston Villa head into the clash on the back of a goalless draw with Wolves on a Saturday. Their goalless draw means the Villans have won one of their last five games in the Premier Leauge.
