30'

SAVE! Luiz is teed up by Grealish, 20 yards out. The ex-Manchester City youngster takes a touch to set himself before unleashing a powerful, dipping strike. Dubravka, though, reacts quickly to tip it over.

28'

Shelvey elects to take the free-kick quickly, trying to catch Heaton cold. He doesn’t get enough curl on his effort, though, and the former Burnley goalkeeper gathers it in.

22'

Whatever Targett’s issue, it is not enough to stop him carrying on, and Villa are soon back to their full complement.

20'

Targett has to receive some medical attention after going down on Villa’s left wing. It appears as though he was slightly unwell.

19'

Willems has to make a last-ditch tackle. McGinn robs the ball back in Newcastle’s box, but the referee blows up for a foul.

17'

Newcastle are unbeaten in their last 12 league meetings with Villa since a 0-1 defeat at Villa Park in April 2011.

11'

Newcastle get Saint-Maximin involved, and the former Nice winger displays plenty of skill and pace to beat his marker and drill in a cross, which is deflected into the side netting. The Magpies can’t make anything of the resulting corner, though.

9'

Indeed, Grealish is back on the pitch quickly enough. He’s involved immediately, winning possession back high upfield, but Fernandez manages to cut out his pass before it can reach Wesley.

8'

A bit of a worry for Villa, as Grealish goes down following a knock from Yedlin, who immediately apologises. However, the hosts’ captain gets back to his feet quickly enough after receiving treatment, and it looks as though he’ll be fine to continue.

7'

Villa are winless in six home league games against Newcastle, with the last two top-flight meetings between the sides at Villa Park finishing 0-0.

1'

KICK-OFF! Newcastle get proceedings up and running. They go long immediately, with the loose ball falling to Willems. He looks to drill in a flat cross to the near post, but Heaton is able to collect it with ease.

19:54

Jamaal Lascelles is absent through injury, so Bruce makes one alteration to his side, bringing in Dummett to the visitors’ defence. With Almiron and Saint-Maximin up front, Newcastle have plenty of pace to call upon on the counter.

19:54

NEWCASTLE SUBS: Andy Carroll, Dwight Gayle, Christian Atsu, Emil Krafth, Karl Darlow, Fabian Schar, Matty Longstaff.

19:54

NEWCASTLE (3-4-3): Martin Dubravka; Federico Fernandez, Ciaran Clark, Paul Dummett; DeAndre Yedlin, Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey, Jetro Willems; Miguel Almiron, Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin.

19:48

Three changes in total from Smith, who is able to welcome Grealish back into the fold after he missed the defeat to Wolves through injury. He replaces Trezeguet on the left, while Hourihane comes into midfield. In goal, Heaton returns in place of Steer.

19:48

ASTON VILLA SUBS: Henri Lansbury, Marvelous Nakamba, Trezeguet, Orjan Nyland, Jonathan Kodja, Ahmed El Mohamady, Kortney Hause.    

19:48

ASTON VILLA (4-3-3): Tom Heaton; Frederic Guilbert, Ezri Konsa, Tyrone Mings, Matt Targett; John McGinn, Douglas Luiz, Conor Hourihane; Anwar El Ghazi, Wesley, Jack Grealish.

19:42

Today’s match represents a return to Villa Park for Steve Bruce, who was in charge of the club between 2016 and 2018. His Newcastle side are unbeaten in their last three league outings, winning the previous two matches – against West Ham and Bournemouth – prior to the international break.

19:38

Villa were looking up after two successive wins, but three consecutive defeats has seen Dean Smith’s side slip down the table. They sit 17th, though a victory would take them up two places above Everton and West Ham.
