Rafa – Not out of the woods yet.
Newcastle United host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Sunday aiming to keep themselves clear of the relegation zone.

The Magpies have lost just one of their last six league matches to lie 14th in the table, four points above the bottom three.

However, last weekend’s 3-0 drubbing at home to West Ham United highlighted that manager Rafa Benitez still has a big job on his hands.

Newcastle were much improved at Everton in midweek, deservedly picking up a point courtesy of a 1-1 draw.

After a run of six games without a win, losing five times in that sequence, Wolves pulled off a shock 2-1 win over Chelsea on Wednesday. That result left them 12th in the table, six points ahead of Newcastle. (more…)

Two managers on the edge?
Newcastle United travel to Manchester United on Saturday still searching for their first win of the Premier League season.

The Magpies were beaten 2-0 at home by Leicester City last weekend, with goals by Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire keeping Rafa Benitez’s side in the bottom three.

Newcastle have scored just four times so far this season and a long battle against relegation is beginning to look likely.

The visitors will be without both Florian Lejeune and Salomon Rondon through injury, but Paul Dummett and Federico Fernandez should be available after the pair missed the Leicester defeat. (more…)

The Toon’s next four opponents
It’s fair to say that it hasn’t been a great start to the season for Newcastle United, but the next few weeks offer the perfect opportunity to climb the Premier League table.

The Magpies head into Saturday’s game against Leicester City 18th in the standings, having collected just two points from their opening six matches.

A victory this weekend would be a major boost, although there are reasons to believe that October and early November could be a productive period regardless of what happens against the Foxes.

Read on as we look at Newcastle’s next four opponents after the Leicester game. (more…)
