The Aston Villa vs Newcastle live stream features two teams who have gone in opposite directions since they met on the Premier League opening weekend — and you can watch it live from anywhere with a VPN.
When Aston Villa traveled to St James’ Park on the first match week of the Premier League 23/24 season, they endured a torrid time. Newcastle ripped Villa apart in a convincing 5-1 win. And yet since that very one-sided match back in August, it’s Aston Villa who have gone on to upset the established EPL order. Villa are 4th with Champions League qualification in their sights. Conversely, Newcastle are the most out-of-form team in the entire league with six defeats in their last seven games and with an injury list that only seems to be growing with each passing week.
On paper, Aston Villa look an almost sure bet to avenge that dismal defeat on the opening day of the season. Plus, Villa can also take even more comfort from their strong home record over Newcastle. You have to go back to September 2013 for the last time Newcastle left Villa Park with all three points, and this matchup last season saw Villa dismantle the Magpies with ease in an impressive 3-0 victory. Newcastle haven’t had it easy over the past two months, but it looks like the Toon Army might have to endure another uncomfortable 90 minutes in this midweek match.
Here's how they line up:
Aston Villa: Martinez, Cash, Konsa, Lenglet, Moreno, McGinn, Luiz, Kamara, Tielemans, Diaby, Watkins.
Newcastle: Dubravka, Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn, Miley, Guimaraes, S Longstaff, Murphy, Isak, Gordon.
However, Aston Villa’s form has taken a little bit of a turn in recent weeks with just a single win in their last four matches. Perhaps Newcastle could spring an upset that proves they are still a dangerous side worth taking seriously. You’ll need to watch an Aston Villa vs Newcastle live stream to see how this one plays out, and we’ve all the details you need down below.
