Kickoff:
21st August 2021 3:00 PM

The Magpies will be backed by almost 3,000 travelling fans as they take on Aston Villa on Saturday (kick-off 3pm BST).

Coronavirus restrictions mean that the Newcastle United faithful have been unable to watch their team on the road in the Premier League since March 2020 - when an Allan Saint-Maximin goal gave Steve Bruce's side a 1-0 win at Southampton. 

Both United and Villa suffered opening day defeats, so each set of players will be determined to get their first points of the season on board, but the Magpies could give a second debut to Joe Willock after he signed on a permanent basis from Arsenal last week.

Goalkeeper Freddie Woodman is likely to make his second Premier League appearance after being handed his top-flight bow against West Ham last weekend, and he spoke to NUFC TV ahead of the game.
