Aston Villa are still adjusting to life without Jack Grealish after his £100m move to Manchester City earlier this month. Nevertheless, Villa will feel that losing 3-2 to newly promoted Watford on the opening weekend was a poor result. They will be aiming to make things right in front of their own fans at Villa Park.
Summer signing Danny Ings scored his first goal against Watford, even if it was merely a consolation, and will be hungry for more against a shaky Newcastle backline. Fellow new arrival Emi Buendía will hope to pull the strings, but it's Villa's central pairing of John McGinn and Marvelous Nakamba who are likely to control the game. Manager Dean Smith makes two changes here, bringing in Jacob Ramsey and Douglas Luiz.
Newcastle United are still licking their wounds after a pathetic capitulation against West Ham last weekend. The Hammers scored three goals in 13 minutes to run away with the game 2-4 winners. While skillful winger Allan Saint-Maximin was a bright spark, the Magpies looked worryingly pedestrian in both midfield and defense.
In a bid to fix those failings, sole summer signing Joe Willock starts in the midfield today. He was on loan in the North East last season and scored eight goals in 14 games, so his return will give the squad much-needed freshness in the center of the park. In defense, Fabian Schar and captain Jamaal Lascelles both come in. However, Villa will feel the 3 points are very much here for the taking against a side that could be a dark horse pick for relegation.
Here's how they line up:
Aston Villa: Martinez, Cash, Konsa, Mings, Young, McGinn, Ramsey, Douglas Luiz, El Ghazi, Buendia, Ings
Substitutes: Steer, Targett, Wesley, Hourihane, Tuanzebe, Nakamba, Hause, Philogene-Bidace, Chukwuemeka
Newcastle: Woodman, Murphy, Schar, Fernandez, Lascelles, Ritchie, Hayden, Willock, Almiron, Wilson, Saint-Maximin
Substitutes: Gillespie, Clark, Joelinton, Lewis, Hendrick, Krafth, Fraser, Gayle, S. Longstaff
