In his weekly Sky Sports predication today, Paul Merson does not think Newcastle can get their first win of the season at home to Leicester City tomorrow.
Paul Merson – predicts a 2-2 draw
Here is how the 46 year-old former Aston Villa and England midfielder summed up the game for Sky Sports:
“This is one of those games where the Newcastle fans will turn up expecting to win. They drew their last game with Swansea, which was a bit of a bonus because a lot of people didn’t expect them to get anything there, but the expectations will be different here because they’re at home to a promoted side.”
“I know Leicester are doing great, but the pressure will be on the home players. I think it’s a hard game because Leicester will fancy their chances. Newcastle will bomb forward and they could get caught on the break by the pace of Jamie Vardy – so this could be a wide-open and gung-ho game. A draw is no good for Newcastle, but I see that happening.”
“PAUL PREDICTS: 2-2”
And the Newcastle fans are not too confident we can get the win either, with only 38% thinking we can get all 3 points tomorrow, and get our first win of the season.
If we cannot win tomorrow, it’s going to continue to be gloom and doom on Tyneside, and as Paul says, a draw is no good for Newcastle. 🙁
