Aston Villa fans have been pleading on Twitter for a change of formation for their upcoming match against Newcastle.

These calls came after Aston Villa news Twitter account @AVFC_News shared a post on their official page asking their followers if they think Villa should stick to their usual 4-3-3 formation or scrap it and try something new.

This tweet then led to a large number of Villa fans sharing their opinions on whether or not the team should try a new formation or not.

Here’s a sample of Villa wanting to see a new formation implemented in future games:

Villa have played the 4-3-3 formation in seven of their 12 Premier League matches, with the other five matches seeing them change to a 4-1-4-1 shape (per Transfermarkt).

What do we think?

Given that all three of Villa’s Premier League victories have come when they have ditched their predominant 4-3-3 formation and used their 4-1-4-1 shape instead (per TransferMarkt), gives a good reason for their more attacking 4-3-3 to be dropped for the rest of the season. So maybe a change of formation maybe something for Villa boss Dean Smith and assistant coach John Terry to think about during this international break.
