Newcastle VS Aston Villa

Preview

Newcastle and Aston Villa face off at Saint James Park on this match of the 27th round of the English Premier League.

These are dark times for the home team, only 1 win on their last 8 games puts them on the 11th spot with 32 points. On the previous round Newcastle visited Manchester City and conceded 5 goals.

The away squad is also going through a rough patch, 6 losses on the last 8 matches puts them on the penultimate place of the table with only 22 points.

The head-to-head history clearly favours the home team. On their past 6 matches together, Newcastle has won 4, we have to go back to 2011 to find the last Aston Villa win on this matchup.

Analysis of Newcastle United

Newcastle is going to face some severe player shortage. The influential Cabella, Tioté, Elliot, Taylor and Aarons will not be available.

Sissoko is the main midfield man, responsible for the organization and construction of the team’s attacking play.

Dispete his quality, Newcastle still prefers to attach through the wings, taking advantage of the speed of their flankers Gouffran and Ameobi.

For this match, it is expected that the home team will try to impose its game style from the start. Newcastle is well aware of its opponent weaknesses and will try to take full advantage of them.


Confirmed Lineup: T. Krul, M. Williamson, D. Janmaat, F. Coloccini, M. Haïdara, G. Obertan, Sammy Ameobi, M. Abeid, M. Sissoko, E. Rivière, P. Cissé.
Coach: A. Pardew.

Analysis of Aston Villa

Lambert’s team usually utilizes a 4 defence backline, part of a 4-3-3 tactic with the three offensive references being Sinclair, Benteke and Agbonlahor.

The left side is the preferred one for the construction of Villa’s attacking play taking full advantage of the depth offered by Cissokho.

On this match, we will probably see the visiting team offering the ball possession to Newcastle trying to utilize their good fast break and direct play tactics.


Confirmed Lineup: B. Guzan, C. Clark, M. Lowton, J. Okore, A. Hutton, S. Sinclair, A. Westwood, T. Cleverley, F. Delph, C. Benteke, G. Agbonlahor.
Coach: T. Sherwood.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match is that Aston Villa will not win. True that none of the teams is having a good sequence of results, however, Newcastle is the least poor of the two and, together with the home advantage, it is expected that they will create great danger for their opponent.
