The managers of Aston Villa and Newcastle United stick with the same starting lineups for today's meeting at Villa Park.

Neither Paul Lambert nor Alan Pardew have made any changes to their starting lineups for this afternoon's Premier League clash between Aston Villa and Newcastle United.

As a result, Gabriel Agbonlahor will feature as a lone striker for hosting Villa, while Emmanuel Riviere will take on the same responsibility for the visitors.

Meanwhile, Villa's new signing Carlos Sanchez has been included on the bench, while Newcastle midfielder Siem de Jong has been passed fit to be named as a substitute.

Aston Villa: Guzan; Hutton, Senderos, Vlaar, Cissokho; Westwood, Delph, Richardson; Weimann, N'Zogbia; Agbonlahor

Newcastle: Krul; Janmaat, Williamson, Coloccini, Dummett; Anita, Colback; Gouffran, Sissoko, Cabella; Riviere.
