Newcastle United will be without Emil Krafth and Joe Willock for Saturday’s Premier League game against Aston Villa.

Unai Emery’s side face a tough trip to St James’ Park in their first game of the new season on Saturday, August 12 (kick-off: 17:30pm). The Magpies finished fourth last season and will be playing Champions League football in 2023/24.

Newcastle are also set to hand a debut to defender Tino Livramento who is expected to be fit for Saturday’s game. The full-back has arrived from Southampton on a five-year contract.

But Eddie Howe’s team will have to deal with a couple of absentees in a potential boost for the Villans this weekend. Defender Krafth and midfielder Willock will be unavailable against Villa.
