Why It’s A Shame Newcastle Can’t Play Aston Villa Every Week
A great statistic has emerged concerning today’s opponents Aston Villa.
I knew that we’d had a few run-ins with them over the years but some great info has shown just why we should relish playing our mates from Villa.
In the history of the Premier League we have won more points against Aston Villa than any other team, a grand total of 68 points so far in the 19 Premier League seasons we have competed in. Odds of 29/10 on a Newcastle win are looking very tempting…
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 of us expect to finish easily above us this season.
The excellent Sporting Intelligence website has put together the stats into this table featuring every club we’ve played against in this Premier League era.
At 5pm today a total of 71 points would have a nice ring to it, here’s hoping.
