With VAR once again making the headlines at the Manchester City’s Etihad and Tottenham being handed another get out of jail free card, it has without question been the talking point from last Saturday’s heavyweight encounter.

With the defending champions registering no less than thirty efforts on goal and Tottenham managing just three, the stats will point to the fact that City should have won the game at an absolute canter.

At the same time, if there was ever a game that proved that it is not all about the stats surrounding the game and more about the final number of goals that were scored, then Saturday’s evening offering was the one. (more…)

Newcastle United v Arsenal match preview.
Another tough start to the season.
Newcastle United welcome Arsenal to St James’ Park on Sunday aiming to kick-off their Premier League season with a victory.

It has been another difficult summer for the Magpies, with off-field shenanigans once again dominating the news agenda.

Rafa Benitez’s departure as manager was inevitable, leaving fans up in arms about Mike Ashley’s continued ownership of the club.

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. (more…)

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…)
