Aston Villa is traveling to Newcastle tonight as they continue their attempt to escape the Premier League relegation zone.

While Newcastle defeated a 10-man Sheffield United 3-0 in their last outing, Villa followed a 0-0 draw against the Blades with a 2-1 loss to Chelsea.

Dean Smith’s Villa is in 19th place in the table with 26 points and the time is up, while the Magpies are in 13th place with 38 points with a top half finish that is not out of the question.

The visitors can rely on their valiant effort against Chelsea, but the spirit of the home team will be high after their complete victory last time.

Here is everything you need to know about the Premier League match at St James’ Park tonight.

When is it and what time is the kick-off?
The game will begin at 6pm on Wednesday June 24 at St James’ Park.

How can I see it online and on television?
The match will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1, with coverage starting at 5.45 p.m.

BT Sport subscribers can also stream the game in the BT Sport app.

What is the news of the team?
While Villa fans will be relieved to know their team is in top form, there is bad news for Newcastle fans.

Brothers Matty and Sean Longstaff will not show up tonight as the former has just returned to training and Florian Lejeune and Ciaran Clark are still out of shape, the latter with an ankle problem.

Planned alignments
Newcastle: Dubravka; Manquillo, Lascelles, Fernández, Rosa; Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey, Saint-Maximin, Almiron; Joelinton

Aston Villa: Nyland; Konsa, Hause, Mings, Targett; Douglas Luiz, Grealish, Hourihane; The Ghazi, Samatta, Trezeguet

What are the odds?
Newcastle 10/13

Draw 9/4

Aston Villa 11/5

Prediction
Aston Villa have shown more heart than some of their relegation rivals since the Premier League restart, while Newcastle will be powered by a great result against the Blades, although a red card helped them. Both teams could cancel each other out. Newcastle 1-1 Aston Villa
