Around 2,950 tickets have been snapped up by Magpies supporters as Steve Bruce’s men make the trip to Villa Park.

It will be the first time United fans have followed their beloved team on the road for a competitive game since March 2020 when Allan Saint-Maximin’s goal sealed a 1-0 win at Southampton.

Bruce’s side are looking to bounce back from the opening day defeat to West Ham.
