In English Premier League 2019, Aston Villa takes the seventeenth position in the points table. With the total of 12 games played, AVL has won in 3 games, tied 2 games and lost in 7 games.
Seven of the eleven points that the Villans have mustered this season from the first 12 games came in a three-game unbeaten stretch.
Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish is in line to make his first appearance in four weeks following a calf injury. His absence is one of the big factors in Villa’s patchy form.
The Toons will have to deal without their captain Jamaal Lascelles who has been ruled out until next year with a fractured leg. It’s a huge blow for the team as the 26-year-old has been one of the best players for Newcastle this season.
