The Premier League recent form table – the last 6 matches suggest Newcastle v Villa will be two baldy blokes fighting over the proverbial comb.

Always a nice sight to see our old friends rock bottom of the table below, with 6 Ls next to their name.

Not so comforting though to see that without the win at Hull we’d be right next to them.

Villa haven’t actually won a Premier League match since December 7, some 12 weeks ago!

Surely John Carver can pick up his second win in nine matches…

Villa’s last six results with latest one listed first;

Villa 1 Stoke 2

Hull 2 Villa 0

Villa 1 Chelsea 2

Arsenal 5 Villa 0

Villa 0 Liverpool 2

Leicester 1 Villa 0

Looking for positives in Newcastle’s case…Villa look even worse

John Carver made much of going three matches unbeaten but when you are facing a team as woeful as Aston Villa then surely you have to go on all out attack and finish them off early.

Newcastle’s last six also listed with the latest result first;

Man City 5 Newcastle 0

Palace 1 Newcastle 1

Newcastle 1 Stoke 1

Hull 0 Newcastle 3

Newcastle 1 Southampton 2

Chelsea 2 Newcastle 0
