Ollie Watkins to score first. The striker has proven to be a major success at Villa Park since his arrival, driving the Midland club’s push for Europe.

Watkins has netted eight goals this season, making him Villa’s leading goal scorer, and he will be confident of taking advantage of a poor Newcastle side.
