Villa v Toon - Facts And Figures

Villa v Toon - Facts And Figures

ASTON VILLA: David O'Leary's side go into the match on the back of last weekend's 4-0 victory over the Smoggs at the Riverside, but they haven't notched consecutive victories in 11 League games since beating Sunderland (1-3 a) and Charlton (1-0 h) on 19 and 26 November respectively.

The Midlanders are the draw specialists of the top flight (nine of 25). They've only won as many League matches at home, as Newcastle have achieved away (three).

Villa have not been beaten in six Premiership meetings with the Tyneside club. They've won two and drawn four, including last season's corresponding fixture when the home side won 4-2. It was only Villa's second home Premiership victory over Newcastle. The Magpies' manager of the time, Sir Bobby Robson dropped Alan Shearer, lost the game and then his job, just two days later.

NEWCASTLE UNITED: The Mags can leapfrog Aston Villa in the table with maximum points. But they travel on a run of four successive League defeats away from home, and another would give them the unwanted landmark of 150 losses, home and away, in the Premier League.

No club has failed to score in more top League contests this season than the Toon. They've failed to find the net in over half of their outings (13 of 24). Those two dozen matches have yielded 50 goals (22 for, 28 against). The goals per game ratio is inferior only in Premiership matches involving Liverpool.

The Tyneside club have won five of 12 Premiership visits to Villa Park, but not since a 0-1 triumph on 7 December 2002 when Alan Shearer scored the winner. That was the last time United beat Villa. Two goals were shared in this season's reverse fixture. Shearer put the home side ahead from the spot. Gavin McCann equalised, before Graeme Souness' side were let off the hook when Villa midfielder Gareth Barry fired an 89th minute penalty over the crossbar.
