newcastle united v manchester united

BT Sport subscribers have two midweek games from the Barclays Premier League to look forward to, including a West Midlands derby between Aston Villa v West Brom.

There will be more than just bragging rights at stake when these two rivals meet on Tuesday- there are also three precious league points up for grabs.

While West Brom's recent run of form has eased their relegation fears, helping them into mid-table, the outlook for Aston Villa looks bleaker and bleaker.

Tim Sherwood's men have slid into the drop zone following seven successive defeats and look nailed-on for the drop on current form.

You have to go back to December 7th for the last Villa league win: a narrow 2-1 victory against bottom side Leicester City. Will their fortunes finally change against Tony Pulis' improving WBA side?

Villa will be backed by a home crowd in this one at least, as they host West Brom at 7:45pm on Tuesday March 3rd, live on BT Sport 1.

The following evening, BT Sport viewers can enjoy another game from the Barclays Premier League: Newcastle United v Manchester United.

The home side secured their first home win under new boss John Carver at the weekend, seeing off Aston Villa 1-0 courtesy of a Papiss Cisse strike.

This came after the Geordies' 5-0 thumping at Manchester City the previous weekend.

Louis van Gaal brings the other Manchester side - the Red Devils - to St James' Park targeting valuable away points, following their 2-0 home win against Sunderland on Saturday.

United have struggled on the road for much of the season, drawing or losing games they might have expected to win in previous years.

Newcastle is invariably hostile for visiting sides, so Van Gaal's men will have to be on the top of their game in this encounter, at 7:45pm on Wednesday March 4th.
