Did you know?

Newcastle are aiming to win a third consecutive Premier League match for the first time since November 2018.

The Magpies' 3-0 win over Sheffield United was only the second time they had netted three goals in a Premier League match this season. They last scored three times in successive top-flight encounters in January 2015.

Dean Smith's visitors are the only side yet to keep a clean sheet on the road in the Premier League this term.

Villa could complete a Premier League double over Newcastle for the first time since 2004/05, having beaten them 2-0 at Villa Park in November.
