Newcastle’s head coach Eddie Howe in his press conference yesterday was upbeat and positive as usual.
And that’s always a good trait and Howe is also realistic and just a great role model for our young impressionable supporters.
You can’t go far wrong if you look at Eddie Howe and how he handles both his successes and the challenges we all get in life.
Howe does not have trouble this week in picking the Newcastle team, and although we are getting players back from injury like Jacob Murphy and perhaps Harvey Barnes, they are coming back to fitness slowly.
We look forward to when Joe Willock can return to the Newcastle first team – because he can make a difference with Joelinton out injured for the season.
Here’s a likely team Howe could put out tonight at Villa Park, where Aston Villa have won 9 and drawn one of their 10 home games in the Premier League this season.

Almiron Isak Gordon
That’s one change from the team that started last Saturday in the 2-0 win at Fulham.
Almiron is now fit again after his sickness and will likely start on the right wing in place of Jacob Murphy.
