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…)

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…)

The Magpies have picked up just two points in six games this term, and a defeat this weekend would leave them rooted in the bottom three.

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.

The Gunners opened their campaign with defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea, but have since beaten West Ham United and Cardiff City to climb up to ninth in the standings.

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…)


Newcastle up against it at Manchester United

Manchester United v Newcastle United.
Two teams needing to bounce back.
Newcastle United will bid to return to form when they visit Manchester United on November 18.

After a promising start to the season the Magpies have gone off the boil in their last two games, recording 1-0 defeats against Burnley and Bournemouth.

Their last victory was a 1-0 success at home to Crystal Palace during October, but they are likely to find Jose Mourinho’s side in a fired-up mood at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils’ 1-0 defeat at Chelsea in their last match was just their second reverse of the season and it left them eight points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City. (more…)
