Comments:

League position: 15th After 13 games, Aston Villa had now won four of their games so far in this Premier League; one more than they won in the 38 games in their most previous season in the division (three in 2015-16). Villa kept their first clean sheet in their last eight games in the Premier League. This was their second win in their last 18 games in the Premier League played on a Monday; also versus Sunderland in April 2013.

Comments:

League position: 14th Newcastle United failed in their attempt to win three consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since November 2018. The Magpies failed in their attempt to score more than one goal in three consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since October 2013. When selected to be televised on a Monday night in the Premier League, this was the 14th consecutive game that Newcastle United had been chosen as the away team. The last ‘MNF’ game at St James’ Park was against Wigan Athletic on 3 December 2012. [c/o NUFC Supporters Trust].
