Newcastle take on Villa on Monday 20th February, 2017, with kickoff at 20:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.

Oh, it was so recently that Newcastle and Aston Villa were very much Premier League teams, established at the top level and enjoying the view, but a few bad years from each means they now meet in a Championship match. Newcastle are about where you’d expect a Premier League team to be, that being top of the table, but Villa are really slumming it in sixteenth.

A loss should put more pressure on the Villa manager, but for now he seems safe regardless of what happens on the pitch, which might explain why they’re so bad.
