Aston Villa v Newcastle

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Aston Villa lost 12 of their 22 home games last season
Expert verdict
Newcastle look well equipped to come away with three points having picked up seven wins on their travels last season to finish 11 points ahead of the Villans, who were poor at home in 2013-14. The Magpies’ superior attacking threat should prove the difference.
