Newcastle United and Aston Villa will meet in the 29th round of the Premier League. Newcastle has two draws in a row, 16 positions are not commendable, and the goal is to fight for survival. The guests are one of the biggest overachievers this season, they also surprised some of the favorites, and the goal is to fight for the Europa League. Dean Smith is a great manager.

Reason for Newcastle United vs Aston Villa Predictions
At 27 points and placed 16th, Newcastle hopes to get three points to move them closer to safety. Newcastle drew with relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion, leaving them winless in their last four matches. In the previous 18 games, Newcastle United have won twice and kept just three clean sheets. Injuries to key forwards Callum Wilson, Miguel Almiron, and Allan Saint-Maximin have really affected the team. The three have collectively scored 16 of Newcastle’s 27 goals. The Magpies have failed to score in eight of their last 15 matches and have just one win in their previous seven home matches in the league. Four of their last five home matches have produced over 2.5 goals, but it is Newcastle who has been on the receiving end, conceding twice in four. Sean Longstaff plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Joelinton is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Like Newcastle, Aston Villa goes to this game with one win in their last five matches. They drew 0-0 with Wolverhampton Wanderers in their previous game, getting their third clean sheet in five games. The visitors haven’t also been scoring a lot of goals, and perhaps it is due to the lack of creativity with Jack Grealish injured. In the last eight matches, Villa hasn’t scored more than a goal and has failed to score completely in three of their previous five games. Six of their last eight away league matches have produced under 2.5 goals. Grealish is the best player in Villa, and many clubs want him. Anwar El-Ghazi is a great player, he has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. Ollie Watkins is a great striker, he scored six times, and more goals are expected from this guy.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Newcastle is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Aston Villa will meet the expectations and deliver a win.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. We don’t believe either side will keep the clean sheet.
