Newcastle Vs Aston Villa – Preview, Betting & Team News



Sundays 14:00 kick off is Newcastle vs Aston Villa, both teams will be looking to secure three points at St. James Park.

The visitors, Aston Villa, have enjoyed life under new manager Steven Gerrard. After a successful transfer window bringing in the likes of Phillipe Coutinho and Lucas Digne, the Villains find themselves in eleventh in the Premier League table and on a good run of form, being unbeaten in their last three games.

Newcastle are also on a good run of form in the Premier League, Eddie Howe’s men are unbeaten in four games, recently defeating Everton 3-1 on Tuesday Night.

The Magpies spent £92m in January and the investments in the squad are proving worthwhile.

Kieran Trippier stood out for the Tyneside club on Tuesday, topped off with scoring a lovely free kick. Newcastle fans got a glimpse of new signing, Bruno Guimarães  and will be hoping to see more on Sunday.

Phillipe Coutinho has been key to Steven Gerrard’s side, with two goals and two assists in three games, proving to be a welcome addition at Villa Park.

Coutinho featured a key part in Villa’s 3-3 draw with Leeds United, scoring one and assisting one in what was an end-to-end game.

A win for Newcastle on Sunday could see them move a point above Everton, if Everton don’t beat Leeds at Goodison.

Newcastle are without Callum Wilson (calf), Issac Hayden (knee) and Federico Fernandez (thigh). Kieran Tripper is 50/50 and Newcastle will decide on the day, where as Matt Targett is ineligible as he is on loan from Aston Villa.

Aston Villa could potentially be without Emi Buendia (hip), Phillipe Coutinho (cramp), Leon Bailey (fitness), however a return on Sunday could be on the cards. Ezri Konsa is suspended.

Current Form:

Newcastle United: WWDDL

Aston Villa: DWDLL

Newcastle are in good form following Tuesdays win, but they come against an Aston Villa team who are good at attacking and scoring goals.

Sky has Aston Villa as the slight favourites at 6/4 where they have Newcastle at 17/10.

Raoul Moat Drama Coming Soon To ITV



It looks set to be one of ITV’s biggest dramas this year and The Hunt for Raoul Moat is being brought to screen by the same people responsible for smash hit shows Line of Duty, Bodyguard and Vigil.

It was confirmed last April that production on the series had commenced, nearly 12 years after Moat gunman shot ex girlfriend Samantha Stobbart and her new boyfriend Christopher Brown, with Brown dying from his injuries. After fleeing Samantha’s home in Birtley, Moat, who had been released from prison just days earlier, went on the run, shooting on duty policeman PC David Rathband in the face as he sat in a patrol car on the outskirts of Newcastle and leaving him blind.

From there, Moat headed for Northumberland, forcing the quiet village of Rothbury into a lockdown as police launched a frantic search for him. The hunt for Moat reached its conclusion with a tense stand-off between the killer and the police on a riverbank, with Moat eventually shooting himself and dying from his injuries as he was rushed to Newcastle General Hospital.

ITV announced three parter The Hunt for Raoul Moat almost a year ago, as filming got underway in Yorkshire, with a cast including ex Bodyguard star Matt Stokoe as Moat and Inspector George Gently actor Lee Ingeleby as police chief Neil Adamson.

ITV have yet to officially announce an release date for The Hunt for Raoul Moat, but is expected to be form part of the channel’s spring programming.
