"Everybody has been talking about the crowd being with us last season and the start of this season," the 22-year-old told the club's official website ahead of the Magpies' visit to Villa Park.

"They've been brilliant for us. I'm sure they will be there against Newcastle again. You feel that.

"When somebody shouts your name or sings a song about you and it's loud it's going to give you another 10 per cent and you're going to run the extra mile.

"Every time we play at home we go into the game and try and win it."

Weimann scoed seven goals in 30 Premier League appearances last season as Villa avoided relegation by five points.
