Charlie Nicholas’ Premier League predictions
Charlie Nicholas Offers his verdict on the Monday Night Football clash between Aston Villa and Newcastle.
Aston Villa vs Newcastle – Monday Kick-off 8pm
I’ve been impressed with both of these sides. Steve Bruce would like to play better football but he has a lack of options. Newcastle fans must admit that this is a difficult job and he’s having to struggle through, which I think he has done thus far. Bruce may just be demonstrating his point he needs a few players. If a person leaves, mike Ashley might not be able to give him exactly what he needs but he can find a couple of loan deals or get you.
John McGinn is playing forward and it’s currently working a hint. Aston Villa need to nurture and control leads better, and at times they leave themselves vulnerable. That being said, I have to respect. Villa can be Bruce’s old club and will sit but it will be sneaked by Villa. There’s enough about them to create opportunities.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (8/1 with Sky Bet)
