Rondon: Disappointing so far
Two points from six games is a paltry return by any stretch of the imagination and it’s a situation that Newcastle United need to quickly resolve.

Much has been written about owner Mike Ashley’s lack of investment in the squad, but the Magpies still have plenty of talented players at their disposal.

With Saturday’s home game against Leicester City the ideal opportunity for Newcastle to get more points on the board, we look at who could be the difference makers this weekend.

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.

Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley.
Laurel and Hardy – The relegation specialists.
The Premier League is not only the most popular football league on the planet, but it is also the most lucrative. With television rights and top-flight status offering millions of pounds on a yearly basis, every club wants to avoid relegation.

Newcastle United v Arsenal match preview.
Yet another tough fixture for the Magpies.
Newcastle United host Arsenal on Saturday aiming to put a disappointing start to the Premier League season firmly behind them.

The Magpies head into the game 18th in the table, having picked up just one point from four outings this term.

Newcastle will be hoping that Jonjo Shelvey, Javi Manquillo and Matt Ritchie can all return this weekend, but Florian Lejeune remains on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Unai Emery has numerous injury worries to contend with, particularly in defence. (more…)
