The date of the Aston Villa match against Newcastle United in the English Premier League

The Aston Villa and Newcastle United teams will meet today, Saturday, April 15, 2023, at 12:30 GMT.

The Magpies arrive at Villa Park on the back of five straight wins, which sees them occupy third place in the table, while Villa's evolution under Unai Emery continued with victory over Nottingham Forest last weekend.

Only days after leaving the bench to score Aston Villa's last-gasp winner at Leicester City, Bertrand Traore once again proved the Birmingham side's 'supersub' last time out, as he broke the deadlock in a 2-0 win against struggling Nottingham Forest.

Having replaced the injured Leon Bailey midway through the first half, Traore struck just after the break and red-hot Ollie Watkins then sealed the deal with a second goal in stoppage time, elevating Villa into the Premier League's top six.

Since Unai Emery's first game in charge last November, only his former club Arsenal have picked up more points and earned more wins in the top flight, as Villa have racked up 11 league wins and 35 points to surge up the standings and into European contention.
