Premier League: Aston Villa loses at home to Newcastle, a first since February 2023

Aston Villa suffered their first home defeat in the league since February 2023, Tuesday against Newcastle (3-1), the Birmingham club leaving behind a series of 17 matches without a loss in the Premier League. Arsenal were the last team to win at Villa Park in the league, on February 18, 2023, by four goals to two. The “Villans” then went on to play seventeen matches without bowing to their fans, one less than their series established during the 1976/77 season.

This season, Unai Emery's team have notably knocked off Brighton, Manchester City and Arsenal, among others, collecting 28 points out of a possible 30 at home. Only Sheffield United held them to a 1-1 draw in December. Newcastle ended this invincibility with, in particular, a close double from Fabian Schär (32nd, 36th), Swiss defender who had not scored in the Premier League since August 2022. The “Magpies” widened the gap with a goal against his own camp by Alex Moreno (52nd, 3-0) and Ollie Watkins saved the honor (71st, 3-1), two minutes before scoring in an off-field position.

In the standings, Aston Villa remains fourth while Newcastle takes advantage of Brighton's rout against Luton (4-0) to take seventh place, leaving behind a bad series of four consecutive defeats in the league.
