A great weight of expectation will descent on Villa Park on Saturday afternoon , Aston Villa have had a rollercoaster start to the Premier League a terrific away win against Arsenal, a moral victory against Chelsea and a disappointing loss at home to Liverpool have left Aston Villa fans hopefully of a good season ahead, one with good football and hopefully plenty of good football. Christian Benteke has lit up the league over the last two years and the Belgian striker has three goals already this season , Paul Lambert warned the rest of the league that the young Belgian had gotten better and on what we have seen so far this season I would have to agree with Lambert. Benteke looks a special player capable of turning a game in an instant. Alongside Benteke , Gabby Agbonlahor looks revitalised and is playing some great football and at the back Villa look solid with Brad Guzan manning the goal line and directing the defence.
Newcastle United have so many talented footballers in their squad its hard to understand why they sometimes struggle to string together three or four passes without coughing up the ball. Alan Pardew has put together a squad of talented attacking footballers, that all can play football, Papa Cisse , Sissoko, Ben Arfa, Loic Remy all are terrific attacking talents and Ben Arfa scored an absolute screamer last time out against Fulham when the magpies prevailed 1-0. Newcastle's away form last season was really poor only winning two of their ninteen away games, although one of those wins was away against Aston Villa I think Villa are in a much different place this year.
