Aston Villa vs Newcastle – Prediction (Premier League – 25.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Ahead of kick-off, Aston Villa have gone nine matches in all competitions without a clean sheet, and defensive tightness has certainly been key for them at home. On each of the last 12 occasions (in all competitions) they’ve conceded over 1.5 goals in a home match, the ‘Villans’ have subsequently failed to win (D6, L6).

Villa are particularly leaky in the second halves of their matches, as quantified by the fact that they have conceded 80% of their Premier League (PL) goals against after half-time so far. In addition, Villa have lost four of the five PL games in which they have conceded first this season. Aston Villa are unbeaten in the last seven competitive games where Anwar El Ghazi has scored (W4, D3), while Newcastle defender (and former Villa player) Ciaran Clark has scored in his last two PL appearances.

75% of Aston Villa’s 12 PL fixtures so far have seen over 2.5 goals. Aston Villa are winless in 12 H2H meetings (D6, L6 – in all competitions), last beating Newcastle back in April 2011. December 2017 marks the last occasion Newcastle won a PL away match after conceding first.

Newcastle United enter this game on a high having won their previous two PL fixtures, and they last enjoyed such a feat back in April. One defeat in five signals improvement from the ‘Magpies’, with half of their PL battles this term seeing both teams score. Visiting manager Steve Bruce will, however, be fully aware that Newcastle never once won back-to-back away contests in the league last season. A majority (four) of Newcastle’s six PL away matches this term have involved over 3.5 total goals, but despite this, Newcastle have still scored just one PL goal from the 76th minute onwards this campaign.
