Aston Villa could climb to second in the Premier League as they host Newcastle.

After such a bright first half of the season, Unai Emery’s side will be looking to regain momentum after stumbling out of the festive period.

They remain well placed, though, as they seek to emulate Newcastle’s achievement last season and record at least a top-four finish.

The visitors, meanwhile, are in desperate need of a win, with two cup wins offering respite in a run of four successive league defeats.

Team news

Jacob Ramsey is back in training after a hamstring injury, though may again miss out for Aston Villa. Jhon Duran, Emiliano Buendia, Pau Torres and Tyrone Mings are among Unai Emery’s longer-term absentees.

Miguel Almiron, who is being linked with a move away from Newcastle, missed the FA Cup win at Fulham due to illness. He may be back amongst things here, but Eddie Howe suggested that Kieran Trippier has a groin “grumble” that may need monitoring, to add to a still large list of injury worries.
