Ahead of the game, a number of interesting stats regarding both teams have come to light:

  • Aston Villa are unbeaten in their past six Premier League home games against Newcastle (winning four in a row), keeping a clean sheet each time. They last lost at home against them in September 2013 (1-2).
  • Following their 5-1 win against them on the opening weekend, the Magpies are looking to complete the Premier League double over Villa for the first time since 2013/14.

  • Since beating United at the start of December, with their seventh win in 10 Premier League games, no side has taken fewer points in the Premier League than Newcastle (three – won one, drawn zero, lost six).
