Alexander Isak anytime goalscorer - 15/8

Bet Builder - 6/1
 

Newcastle or Draw double chance - 5/6

Newcastle have lost their last four Premier League games, but they are capable of picking up at least a point from their trip to Aston Villa on Tuesday evening.

The Magpies have hit a rough spell in the league after being hit by a barrage of injuries, but they have shown they remain a strong team by recording two comfortable FA Cup wins among those league losses, beating Sunderland 3-0 and Fulham 2-0.

The visitors also have the happy memory of their last meeting against Villa, a 5-1 win in their first game of the season in August.

Villa are favourites this time around as they are now 14 points ahead of their opponents in the table and holding on to a top-four place, while the Magpies have fallen to 10th and now have more league losses (11) than wins (10).

However, Eddie Howe can still put out a good-quality side and Villa have not been in the hottest of form themselves.

Their last three games have been goalless draws at Chelsea and Everton and a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough in the FA Cup, while before that they beat Burnley 3-2, lost 3-2 to Manchester United and were held 1-1 at home by Sheffield United.

A win against Newcastle would arguably be better than any of those results and the Magpies can be supported to end their losing run in the league by taking at least a point from this game.

Over 3 goals - 13/10

Villa have recorded clean sheets in each of their last three games, but this contest shapes up to be much more open.

The last time these teams shared a pitch they produced six goals and there is enough attacking talent in the line-ups to expect at least four this time.

Villa had back-to-back 3-2 games before their current clean sheet streak began and those games completed a sequence of five successive matches in which both teams scored.

Newcastle have scored at least two goals in each of their last four outings, which include defeats to top teams in Liverpool (4-2) and Manchester City (3-2).

When the Magpies click they can provide plenty of goals and, in addition to the first meeting with Villa, they have scored four or more goals against Sheffield United, Paris St-Germain, Crystal Palace and Chelsea this season.

With Villa looking to return to the top three and Newcastle determined to break their losing run in the league, this should be an open encounter that could turn into a high-scoring game.

Alexander Isak anytime goalscorer - 15/8

Alexander Isak has been on a great goalscoring run for Newcastle and had netted five goals in his previous four appearances before drawing a blank in Saturday's win at Fulham. 

He scored in both of his team's high-scoring defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City and has 15 goals for club and country in total this season.

That includes two goals against Villa in his first appearance of the campaign, when he rounded off a smart free-kick routine for his first goal and supplied a lovely chipped finish for his second.

He can prove a handful for the Villa defence to deal with again.
