There is a very simple way of looking at the results of the matches of Newcastle vs West Ham and Hull City vs Manchester United on Sunday to see who goes down.
Maybe John will be smiling like this at the final whistle on Sunday?
Hull are two points behind Newcastle with a much better goal difference so here’s how to decide who takes the drop:
- If Newcastle win they are safe.
- If Hull win and Newcastle don’t win Hull are safe.
It’s as easy and as simple as that – basically if Newcastle draw it means nothing and it’s no better than a defeat – and a draw is also as good as a defeat for Hull.
Hull must win to stay up but Newcastle don’t have to win to stay up.
On SkyBet Hull are 1/7 odds on to go down, and Newcastle are 9/2 to go down.
It’s still in Newcastle’s hands to save themselves but we need a win, which we haven’t had for over 11 weeks.
