Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in ten of Aston Villa’s last 11 Premier League games.
  • Each of Villa’s last three league victories have been by 2-1 scorelines.
  • Newcastle have scored 12 goals in their last five top-flight matches.

Villains can bounce back on Saturday

The post-Jack Grealish era at Aston Villa started in disappointing fashion last weekend as they were beaten by the newly promoted Watford but it’s far too soon for Dean Smith to be panicking just yet and I expect them to bounce back with a win on Saturday.

The Villains were 3-0 down to Watford at one point but there’s no doubting the Hornets got their fair share of luck at Vicarage Road. That being said, defensively Villa looked very loose indeed and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Newcastle create a decent number of chances on Saturday.

Newcastle struggling at the back

Steve Bruce’s Magpies endured a frustrating afternoon themselves as they lost 4-2 at home to West Ham despite twice taking the lead at St James’ Park.

The Hammers tore Newcastle apart in the second half, with a 15-minute spell resulting in three goals for the visitors and all but ending Newcastle’s hopes of getting an opening day win to appease the home support.

What was a pleasant surprise was the exciting Newcastle attack, led by Callum Wilson and supplemented by the skill and energy of Allain Saint-Maximin. They have now scored 12 goals in their last five Premier League games and I can see them getting on the scoresheet at Villa Park.

Expect goals at both ends at Villa Park

Aston Villa have seen both teams score in ten of their last 11 league matches and have seen an impressive 37 goals in that period and, considering how much Newcastle struggled to deal with West Ham last weekend, backing both teams to score looks a good option here.

The hosts should have enough to get the win, too. They are unbeaten at home to Newcastle in five matches and have won the last two and, with each of their last three league wins being by a 2-1 scoreline, that’s our choice for a correct score prediction.

Danny Ings is also worth considering in the anytime goalscorer market. The former Southampton man marked his debut with a goal from the penalty spot last week and has scored 34 goals in the last two top-flight seasons. He will be the main threat to this dodgy Magpies defence.

Aston Villa predicted lineup: Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Young; Buendia, Nakamba, McGinn, Bailey; Ings, Watkins

Newcastle predicted lineup: Woodman; Fernandez, Lascelles, Clark; Murphy, Willock, Hayden, Almiron, Ritchie; Saint-Maximin, Wilson
