Aston Villa v Newcastle United live stream, Sky Sports, Friday 4 December, 8pm GMT
Aston Villa will be looking to bounce back from Monday’s defeat by West Ham against Newcastle on Friday night - if the game goes ahead.
The Magpies have been hit with a significant outbreak of COVID-19 in the camp, and at the time of writing the match is under threat of postponement. It would be the first Premier League match to be called off for coronavirus, with the entire Newcastle squad having been forced into self-isolation following a spate of positive tests.
The outbreak has lowered the mood at St James’ Park, which had been high following a 2-0 win at Selhurst Park last Friday. Newcastle’s clash with Crystal Palace looked set to finish 0-0 as second-half stoppage time approached, but late goals from Callum Wilson and Joelinton tipped the balance in the visitors’ favour. That win moved Newcastle onto 14 points for the season, and victory at Villa Park would see them climb into the top half of the table.
You can get 15/4 for a Newcastle victory with Bet365, as well as up to £100 in Bet Credits.
Villa felt hard done by to come away from the London Stadium with nothing last time out. They were probably the better team over the course of the 90 minutes, and saw Ollie Watkins’ late ‘equaliser’ chalked off by VAR after the narrowest of offside margins. Dean Smith will have been pleased with many aspects of his team’s performances, but Villa must find greater consistency if they are to finish in the top half this term. Indeed, they have now won five and lost four of their nine games to date, and it is sometimes difficult to predict what you are going to get from them.
You can get 4/5 for a Villa victory with Betfred, as well as £30 in Free Bets + 60 Free Spins when you bet £10.
Villa will again have to make do without Ross Barkley, who is nursing a hamstring problem. Wesley Moraes is a long-term absentee, while Kortney Hause, Bjorn Engels and Frederic Guilbert are still sidelined. Smith has largely picked a settled starting XI this season and will be loath to make too many changes despite the defeat by West Ham.
The identity of the players who have tested positive for coronavirus has not been made clear at the time of writing, but Newcastle were missing Isaac Hayden, Emil Krafth, Jamal Lascelles, Andy Carroll and Allan Saint-Maximin against Palace. Martin Dubravka is not yet ready to return, while Ryan Fraser has a thigh injury and Dwight Gayle is out with a knee problem. Paul Dummett is another member of Bruce’s squad who’s currently on the treatment table.
You can get 3/1 for a draw with 888Sport, as well as £30 in Free Bets + £10 Casino Bonus when you bet £10.

Use a VPN to watch an Aston Villa v Newcastle live stream from outside your country
If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jamie Vardy goal. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below).
All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.
