Newcastle United will face Aston Villa as they travel to Villa Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to grab all three points from this away encounter. The Magpies will come into the match on the back of a 2-1 victory against Brentford in their last league outing, so we can expect them to be confident going into this fixture.
Eddie Howe will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation and is expected to keep the changes to a minimum for this contest. Alexander Isak will continue to lead the charge against the opposition while Joelinton and Jacob Murphy provide support from the wide areas.
4-3-3 Newcastle United Predicted XI Vs Aston Villa
Nick Pope will continue to function in between the sticks for the Magpies looking to earn a clean sheet. Sven Botman will continue to play alongside Fabian Schar at the heart of Newcastle’s backline as they focus on stopping the opposition attackers from causing too many problems during the game.
Kieran Trippier will operate as the right-back, while Dan Burn hopes to put in a dominant performance on the other side as the left-back. Both the Newcastle full-backs will be given the responsibility to contain the opposition wingers and stop them from creating chances from the wide areas.
Matt Targett will offer cover for the defensive positions as he takes a spot on the bench.
Sean Longstaff, Bruno Guimaraes and Joe Willock will continue to operate in the central areas as they try to dominate possession at the centre of the park and engineer some decent chances in the final third.
Joelinton will keep his place as the left-sided wide player, while Jacob Murphy hopes to be productive on the right flank. Both of them would have to find a way to create more opportunities in front of the goal if the Magpies are to win this contest.
Alexander Isak will lead the charge for the Tyneside club on the attacking end of the field. The Swedish striker will fancy his chances of finding the back of the net and getting his name on the scoresheet again.
Miguel Almiron will have to be content with a spot on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the final quarter of the game if Newcastle are in need of a goal by then.
