Newcastle United v Aston Villa live stream, BT Sport, Friday 12 March, 8pm GMT
Newcastle will be looking to boost their survival hopes when they host Aston Villa on Friday night.
Steve Bruce’s side picked up a point last time out, as they held West Brom to a goalless draw at The Hawthorns. It was a result that probably suited Newcastle better than the Baggies given the latter’s precarious predicament, but the visitors’ flat performance was still disappointing. Newcastle are now just one point clear of the bottom three, and supporters of the club will now be looking down at the relegation zone with a sense of anxiety.
Aston Villa’s latest match also ended scoreless, with Wolves unable to make a breakthrough at Villa Park. Dean Smith’s charges were anything but solid last term, yet they have been among the most well-organised teams in the division in 2020/21. Indeed, only Manchester City have kept more clean sheets than Villa, who have registered shut-outs in eight away games this season.
Newcastle will be unable to call upon the services of three key attacking players for the visit of the Villans. Callum Wilson will not be available again until next month, while Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron have joined their team-mate on the treatment table of late. Fabian Schar is also missing for the Magpies.
Villa will hope to welcome back Jack Grealish, who has stepped up his recovery from injury in the last few days. That would be a major boost for Smith’s side, who have won only one of four matches without their talisman and captain.
Matty Cash might not return from a thigh injury until after the international break, but Bertrand Traore, Morgan Sanson and Anwar El Ghazi are all expected to be fit after picking up knocks. Kortney Hause is back in training but will not be involved here, while Wesley Moraes is a long-term absentee.
Kick-off is at 8pm GMT and the game is being shown on BT Sport 1 in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Newcastle United v Aston Villa 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 Jose Mourinho tantrum. 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.
There are plenty of options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
