EPL: Newcastle vs Aston Villa

Newcastle will host Aston Villa in the encounter in the 25th round of the English Premier League at St. James’ Park. With a very high performance recently, don’t be too surprised if “Chich choe” continues to hold a victory.

For the first time this season, Newcastle have won two consecutive Premier League victories after beating Leeds 1-0 and most recently Everton with a final score of 3-1. After playing badly in the previous period and constantly struggling in the group holding the red light, it is clear that “Chicken” has had a strong revival. It turned out that Newcastle were unbeaten in the last 4 rounds, before that they also drew Watford and Man Utd. Newcastle accumulated 8 points from the last 12 matches and this necessary form has helped them escape the relegation zone for the first time since the beginning of October 2021.

Specifically, after 22 field matches, Newcastle won 3, drew 9 and lost 10 to bring back 18 points. The home team of St. James ‘Park is 1 point behind Norwich but has been less than 2 games. Thus, if they play well in the near future, Newcastle can completely think about the prospect of early relegation. Newcastle are trying to have 3 unbeaten matches at home after 1 win and 2 draws in the last 2. They are unbeaten in the last 12 home matches against Aston Villa with 6 draws and 6 wins. The last defeat at home to Aston Villa took place in 2005.

Leading Leeds to 3-1 and still playing at home, but in the end Aston Villa still let the opponent hold the score 3-3. In general, Aston Villa no longer maintains the excitement like the first period when Steven Gerrard was in charge. In the last 6 outings in all competitions, the away team won only 1 match as a guest of Everton, the rest lost 3. Of which, Aston Villa lost 2/3 of the recent away matches.

Aston Villa will aim for a double victory over Newcastle after beating this opponent 2-0 in the first leg. The only time they achieved this was in the 2004/05 season. Aston Villa will confidently enter this match when they are unbeaten against Newcastle in the last 7 matches with 3 wins and 4 draws. Of course, at the moment Newcastle is no longer as weak as at the beginning of the season and a defense that has conceded 3 goals against Leeds is difficult to sustain.
