It continues to be a difficult season for Newcastle United at present, and they remain in the battle to stay in the top flight. At present they are around 11/4 to face the drop, which would usually be a big shock for a side as big as Newcastle United if they hadn’t already been relegated twice in the last ten years under current owner, Mike Ashley. What happens in the current January transfer window may also play a role in the prospects for the Magpies in this battle.

However, punters are busy supporting them to stay in the Premier League using the latest offers at They are just a few points from safety at the moment, so need to pick up points fast. Here we cover some important upcoming fixtures which could define their season.

Newcastle v Huddersfield – 23rd February.

The first big upcoming fixture for the club is a clash with Huddersfield at the end of February. Huddersfield themselves are really struggling this season, and sit at the bottom of the table. They are the favourites for the drop, so this is a game Newcastle will expect to pick up maximum points, with it also being played at home. They recently played back in December, in which Newcastle won 1-0, despite only having 26% of the possession. It is likely to be a completely different game at St James’ Park.

Newcastle v Burnley – 27th February.

In what is a very important period for the club sees Newcastle welcome Burnley in the last league game of February. Burnley had a fantastic season last year in finishing 7th, but they have failed to reach those heights so far this season. They are also now in the heart of the relegation battle, so this is set to be a very important fixture for both clubs. The previous clash between the two sides early on this season finished 2-1 to Newcastle, so they will be confident they can pick up the three points on the return home leg.

Newcastle v Southampton – 20th April.

The end of April fixture with Southampton already looks like it could play a big impact come the end of the season. Southampton have surprisingly been very poor this season, and are really struggling at the bottom of the table. Therefore three points would be a huge result for Newcastle. The previous encounter finished 0-0 this season, but it was a 3-0 Newcastle win when taking place at St James’ Park last season. So Newcastle will be looking to produce a similar performance this time around.

Fulham v Newcastle – 12th May.

The final game of the Premier league season for Newcastle sees them travel to face Fulham. The London club are also fighting it out at the bottom of the table, so this could be a huge fixture with the winner possibly even staying up. Both clubs will be hoping to have already secured safety, with the previous encounter in December finishing 0-0 between the two sides.
