Newcastle and Aston Villa are gearing up for long-awaited returns to Europe in 2023/24 and their pre-season preparations see them collide across the Atlantic. They will be partaking in the so-called ‘Premier League Summer Series’ alongside Brentford, Brighton, Chelsea and Fulham.

Newcastle face a club-defining season back in the Champions League and Eddie Howe has already exploited the club’s European status by bringing Sandro Tonali to the club from Milan. His side have so far enjoyed pre-season wins over Gateshead and Rangers, but now they travel half way across the globe.

Aston Villa, likewise, have been busy using their status as a European club to attract some big names, securing the services of Youri Tielemans, Pau Torres and most recently Moussa Diaby. Unai Emery will be desperate to have a proper crack at the Europa Conference League, and these summer months will be vital to his preparations.

Newcastle vs Aston Villa match stats

The respective forwards of these two clubs will be desperate to warm their boots and build some confidence ahead of the continental campaign. Ollie Watkins was the attacking catalyst for Villa last term and has a strong record against Newcastle, scoring three goals in five Premier League games against them.

Callum Wilson was Newcastle’s most threatening force in the final third last term, and he has two goals in two games against Villa, netting a brace against them in a 4-0 win last term. Those two goals contributed towards his overall tally of 18, his best-ever return in a single Premier League campaign.
