Betting odds & tips

Aston Villa are slight favourites to beat Newcastle at 13/8 with bet365. At 17/10 to win, Newcastle are marginal outsiders despite home advantage.

Chris Woods and Danny Ings are both offered at 11/2 to be first goalscorer, while Ollie Watkins can be backed at 13/2.

The last three Premier League meetings between these two sides at St James' Park have ended in a 1-1 scoreline and a repeat is available at 6/1 (7.00).

Both sides come into the game in strong scoring form and Sunday's clash should be an open and entertaining encounter.

Newcastle are on a four-match unbeaten run with new signings Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood fitting into the team well.

Villa, meanwhile, have seen Philippe Coutinho slot into the side in spectacular fashion with the Brazilian managing two goals in his three appearances while bringing some genuine quality to the final third.
