Aston Villa vs Newcastle United Prediction: Premier League Match on 23.01.2021
There will be just one Premier League fixture taking place this weekend, as Aston Villa will be looking to continue their decent start to the season against Newcastle United.
Premier League Preview
Aston Villa were left feeling hard done by after their last Premier League fixture, as they went down to a 2-0 defeat against Manchester City. Villa had their chances in the game, but ultimately went behind after one of the strangest goals that you are likely to see this season. City played the ball forward with Rodri standing in a clear offside position. However, as soon as Tyrone Mings touched the ball, he was tackled by the holding midfielder. The ball was eventually smashed into the net by Bernardo Silva, but VAR refused to overturn the goal for offside. Dean Smith was visibly angry with the decision, and went sent off moments after the goal. City doubled their advantage before the full-time whistle through Ilkay Gundogen. Villa had their chances in the game, and should have went ahead just moments before City broke the deadlock. However, the defeat means that they are now three without a win in the league.
Newcastle are also on a terrible run of form themselves, as they haven’t won in six league fixtures. Steve Bruce’s side are getting closer and closer to the relegation places with every passing week, and will need to get back to winning ways soon. The Toon have lost their last three in the Premier League, with their most recent defeat coming against Arsenal away from home. Newcastle were beaten 3-0 at the Emirates, and couldn’t lay a glove on the Gunners. They had just 33% of the ball, and registered just a single shot on target in the 90 minutes.
Aston Villa vs Newcastle United Head To Head
The Villa have a good record against Newcastle, as they haven’t lost against their opponents this weekend in the Premier League since 2015. Villa took four points off Newcastle last season. They won the game at Villa Park 2-0, before drawing 1-1 at St James’ Park.
Aston Villa vs Newcastle United Prediction
Newcastle have certainly been struggling for form in the Premier League over recent weeks, and Villa will smell blood coming into this fixture. This is a perfect opportunity for them to end their recent poor form, and we expect them to claim the three points.
