Newcastle United Set New Record With Defeat Of Aston Villa
Yesterday’s win at Villa Park was satisfying for all kinds of reasons, not least because it reminded us that we have some very good players and if only we can keep them on the pitch…
Then there are the ones where you have the opposite, such as…Aston Villa.
Yesterday we brought you the following info that we spotted on the excellent Sporting Intelligence, giving Newcastle’s Premier League record against every club, right up to the Fulham match this season.
What the stats told us was that in the history of the Premier League Newcastle had won more points against Aston Villa than any other team, a grand total of 68 points in the 19 Premier League seasons we had competed in.
To put it into perspective, the next highest total is 57 and that total has been reached against both Everton and Spurs, ironically two clubs that most expect to finish easily above us this season.
The excellent Sporting Intelligence website has put together the stats into this table and now happily that total will be 71 points against Villa whenever it is updated.
No wonder they love us!
