Newcastle United v Aston Villa Preview, Championship, 20th February 2017

Newcastle United head into this game having had a great season so far and are looking very good for automatic promotion back up into the premiership next season and can take a huge step towards achieving that on Monday night with a victory against Aston Villa.

The hosts currently occupy second place in the league table on 66pts having secured 21 wins, 3 draws and 7 defeats and are just 2pts behind current league leaders Brighton & Hove Albion, so everyone at the club will know what has to be done in this game.

Aston Villa head into the game having had a very bad season so far, so much so that any chance of them bouncing straight back up into the premiership has now well gone and the confidence of the players at the moment must be rock bottom as they have failed to win any of their last five games of which they have lost four !

The visitors currently occupy 17th position in the league table on 36pts having secured 8 wins, 12 draws and 11 defeats and with the club just 6pts above the relegation places and struggling to win a game they do look in real danger of getting relegated for the second season in a row unless things change dramatically over the next couple of months.

Newcastle United Team News :

Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez must decide whether to start striker Dwight Gayle when they face Aston Villa live on Sky Sports 1 on Monday night.

Gayle returned to action as a late substitute in their 2-2 draw with Norwich on Tuesday after six games out with injury, but could be back in the starting XI for the game at St James’ Park.

Midfielder Isaac Hayden is out for up to four weeks after ankle surgery, while a series of other players are expected to recover from minor knocks. However, Vurnon Anita (ankle) and Rolando Aarons (knee) remain sidelined.

Aston Villa Team News :

Villa boss Steve Bruce will give defensive duo Neil Taylor (ankle) and James Bree (knee) as long as possible to prove their fitness.

Mile Jedinak could return after missing the last five games with a groin injury but Gabby Agbonlahor is out with the hamstring problem he suffered in training last month.

Newcastle United v Aston Villa Head to Head Statistics:

Monday night’s game from St James’ Park will become the 146th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Newcastle United have managed to win 64 times overall, with 45 of those victories having came with home advantage.

Aston Villa have managed to secure 47 wins overall, with just 13 of those victories recorded away from home and with the club struggling to find a win in their last five, those statistics look very unlikely to change.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, recent meetings between the two clubs shows Newcastle United having a slight advantage on the recent form statistics having won just the one game with Aston Villa having won none and the remaining four matches having finished all square.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

444 Goals have been scored in the previous 145 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 3.06.

238 of those Goals have been scored in the previous 72 matches played between the two clubs at St James’ Park and this provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 3.31.

Based on both sets of data shown above, it does seem to suggest that this game should see a least a couple of goals scored in this game on Monday night and as such Total Goals 2 or 3 looks a good choice here.

Newcastle United v Aston Villa Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Newcastle United have a big chance here on Monday night to return back to the top of the championship league table with a victory and most people will probably expect the hosts to win this game, as they are going up against an Aston Villa side that has not won in their last five of which they have lost four.

Anything but a victory for the hosts would be seen as a huge dissapointment and with a packed out St James’ Park stadium fully behind them, it would come as a bit of a shock if they didn’t win this game, especially with the chance to return back to the top of the championship table on the line.

Aston Villa just seem to go from bad to worse and it must be a very difficult time for all their fans, the players just don’t seem interested and look as if they have already accepted the fact that they will be relegated for the second season in a row.

An early goal here by Newcastle United could see the flood gates open and as such the hosts do look the value play here despite being a shade odds on.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Newcastle United to Win as with home advantage, a good record at home against Aston Villa and a chance to take back their top spot in the league table away from Brighton & Hove Albion, that should be more than enough incentive to see the hosts win this one.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Newcastle United striker Dwight Gayle to score the first goal of this game as with 20 goals so far this season he really is having the season of a lifetime and I fully expect him to get his name on the score-sheet in this game.
