Dรฉjร  vu. Battered, some misfortune but battered by a less likeable outfit than you are ever likely to see. Tyrone's injury far more impactful than a rank poor opening day performance that we had all thought was consigned to yesteryear.

TEAM NEWS

Of Villa's three summer signings only Moussa Diaby makes the starting XI with Youri Tielemens and Pau Torres on the bench. Meanwhile Leon Bailey is handed a surprise start and Philippe Coutinho a squad place - both players who many had expected not to be around in 2023-24. Cameron Archer and Jaden Philogene-Bidace make a welcome return to the squad after their loan and pre-season successes whilst Omari Kellyman, 17, features in the 20 for the first time.

MATCHDAY QUOTES

"We were excited and optimistic before the match, knowing itโ€™s a difficult match. We are feeling strong with the supporters and the structure. They are a very physical team and when they are scoring the first goal their transition is very dangerous.

"We were playing and controlling the match in the first half, but in the second half after they scored it was the moment we didnโ€™t react good. If we scored with Matty Cashโ€™s chance maybe we could get some options, but at the end 5-1 is a little bit more than we deserved. They deserved to win, but not like that.

โ€œThe injuries make it even more tough with Emi and Tyrone because we are losing two very important players for today in the match and the next weeks.

"It was good news to watch Moussa playing and feeling good. His adaptation in the position we are trying to get with him was good and he scored and played well. We played with some moments in 90 minutes, but there a lot of things to do in 90 minutes, we have to play and avoid the mistakes. We have to control the match with our positioning and we did do that being consistent.

"When we were in the game with possibilities to score one goal and draw we were optimistic. The injury of Tyrone and the first goal was a tough moment and our reaction after those circumstances, they didnโ€™t work like we were thinking.

"Yes, but I know itโ€™s very difficult for the players. They were trying to attack and get into the box. We did have some chances too and the players were excited to do something, like Coutinho and Jaden. In the transition, the speedy players they have, they were very dangerous and that was the problem. We knew it and those are the circumstances which are very difficult to stop. We were aware of that after last year, but to lose here 5-1 is bigger than normal. Newcastle are feeling strong here. They were very consistent across 90 minutes and we werenโ€™t."

Unai Emery.
