It was a disappointing Newcastle defeat today, against a good Manchester City side.
Yaya Toure scored the vital first goal
But with Tottenham only drawing their game at Aston Villa, Newcastle are now one point behind Tottenham, and two points behind Arsenal, who only drew at home to Norwich yesterday.
If Newcastle can win their last game at Everton next Sunday afternoon, and Arsenal lose at West Brom and Tottenham lose at home to Fulham, then Newcastle will finish 3rd top of the league, and will definitely be in the Champions League next season.
Let us pray.
It was just a little bit flat at the end of the game today, after Newcastle had put in such a good team performance, but a late goal from Toure, his second of the game, made it look like it was a comfortable 2-0 win by Manchester City, but it was anything but.
But there’s still a chance for Newcastle next Sunday, and if the lads win and either Tottenham or Arsenal don’t pick up all 3 points, then Newcastle will finish up in the top four.
You never know with Newcastle this season, and Everton are not as good as Manchester City.
So the bottom line after the disappointment of today – is that it’s still all to play for – but we must win next Sunday.
We’ll take 3rd place. 😀
Howay the Lads!!
