Newcastle United welcome Aston Villa to St James' Park on Wednesday night for the second home match after the tournament returns within 3 days. The Magpies defeated Sheffield United 3-0 in their first match on Sunday, meanwhile, Aston Villa are still in trouble in the bottom group as only 1 point from the last 2 matches since when back

Even the most ardent Newcastle fans cannot expect such a convincing victory over Sheffield United who are on the group for Sunday's cup. Steve Bruce's team has one of the worst attacking records and is facing a team with one of the best defensive achievements, but goals from Allan Saint-Maximin, Matt Ritchie and the contract. Joelinton's unsuccessful success has earned them the most impressive victory of the season. Indeed, this is the first time in the whole season that they have scored more than 2 goals in a home match and 1 red card for John Egan certainly supported their victory, but Bruce will still be happy. Happy with the way his team has won the tournament in two consecutive rounds for the first time since December and only the third victory since Christmas. In all competitions, Newcastle have won 3 consecutive victories, and another victory on Wednesday will see them pass the 40-point mark and may even lift them to the upper half of the table when Bruce continues. Keep silent in front of your criticism of the pitch. They have been unbeaten at St James' Park since New Year's day and have kept a clean sheet in the last 5 appearances in all competitions - including 4 in the Premier League. Last time Newcastle achieved an unbeaten record at home 4 games without conceding in 2012 but this match did not have Sean Longstaff and Matty Longstaff to win against Sheffield United, and both are still doubtful for the match. this match. However, the two brothers are Bruce's only traumatic concern. and another victory on Wednesday will see them pass the 40-point mark and may even lift them to the top of the standings as Bruce continues to be silent on his criticism of the pitch.

A 2-1 defeat at Chelsea's hands on Sunday caused Dean Smith's army to lose for the 6th time in their last 7 matches in all competitions. The distance to the safe position is still only a point after both Bournemouth and West Ham United have also lost, but Villa's inferior goal difference compared to those two teams really adds to the anxiety for survival. their. Only 1 point from 2 home games since coming back will be even more disappointing when they have a bad performance away from home, where they only won twice in the whole season. Aston Villa without Bjorn Engels and Frederic Guilbert are absent long with Wesley and Tom Heaton both injured and Danny Drinkwater is preparing to return to training after the injury.
