Both Newcastle United and Aston Villa have played one match since the break due to COVID-19.
Newcastle United was able to defeat Sheffield United by the final score of 3-0 thanks to a little help from a friend called the "red card". The match was quite even in the first half, as some could even argue that Sheffield United was the better side in the first 45 minutes. However, everything changed when John Egan was shown the red card in the 50th minute for Sheffield. Newcastle United ignited a scoring onslaught with goals by Allan Saint-Maximin (55'), Matt Ritchie (69'), and Joelinton (78'). Newcastle scored its three goals on 12 total shots, with eight of them making it on target.
Aston Villa's struggles continued on Sunday, as the team dropped yet another match. This time, Aston Villa lost to Chelsea, but only by a score of 2-1. In fact, Aston Villa was leading in this match thanks to a tally by Kortney Hause in the 43rd minute. The fluke would run out in the second half, as the 74% possession advantage Chelsea squad would figure it out in the second 45 minutes. United States superstar Christian Pulisic scored in the 60th minute to tie the score at 1-1. Only two minutes later, Olivier Giroud scored the go-ahead and game-winning goal for Chelsea, as the team sailed on to victory. Aston Villa has not won an English Premier League match since January, which is a tough pill to swallow. Aston Villa is currently in danger of relegation, as they are in 19th in the English Premier League standings.
The last time these two teams played against each other was on November 25th, in which Aston Villa was victorious by the score of 2-0. Both clubs have had minor successes against the other in recent history.
Both clubs concede many goals to the opposition, so I have to look at the "Both teams to score" bet at -125. I think defense could be thrown out the window, and the goals should follow.
