Aston Villa team news & predicted line-up vs Newcastle

Here is the latest Aston Villa team news ahead of their clash with Newcastle.

Unai Emery is set to take charge of his first game as Aston Villa manager on Saturday.

Villa sacked Steven Gerrard after 11 games and bounced back with a win last time out.

However, they are still 15th in the Premier League and could easily drop into the relegation zone if things do not go their way.

Ahead of the clash with Newcastle, 101GreatGoals take a look at Aston Villa’s team news.

Predicted Aston Villa XI vs Newcastle

Boubacar Kamara

Kamara was injured in a 1-0 win over Southampton back in September and is expected to be out until after the World Cup.

“Bouba will be missing until after the World Cup, unfortunately, so that’s a huge blow,” Steven Gerrard said on September 30.

Lucas Digne

Digne was also injured after facing Southampton, but the left-back looks to be closing in on a return.

“Lucas could be on the grass today, which is a big step. He’s come out of a boot, and now the process will be to try and build him up. There’s an outside chance he could be around the Newcastle game,” Gerrard said earlier this month.

And speaking on Friday, Aaron Danks said: “Lucas Digne has done a full week of training back in with the group; that’s fantastic, so we welcome him back into the squad.”

Ludwig Augustinsson

Ludwig could return vs Newcastle after picking up a hamstring injury in early October:

“Ludwig will be out for probably around three weeks; he’s got a hamstring injury on the back of the Leeds game,” Gerrard said on October 6.

Diego Carlos

Diego Carlos played just two games for Villa before rupturing his ACL.

There is no return date currently set for the centre-back.
