It Doesn’t Look Good For Newcastle

The teams in 4th bottom and 5th bottom places in the Premier League both won their Premier League games today and moved 3 points further ahead of Newcastle.

Norwich had a good but surprising 1-0 win at West Brom and Swansea won 1-0 at home against bottom club Aston Villa.

That was Swansea’s third win in the last four games and Norwich have now picked up 4 points in their last two games.

The Canaries are now 5  points ahead of Newcastle in 4th bottom place on 29 points and Swansea move to 36 points and a full 12 points ahead of Newcastle in 6th bottom place.

Newcastle have two games in hand on both these clubs.

Crystal Place lost again today – this time 1-0 at home to league leaders Leicester – and moved down to 5th bottom place on 33 points.

In their 11 league games this year Crystal Palace have only 2 points with draws at home to Swansea and at Sunderland and 9 defeats – so they don’t look in good shape at all.

Newcastle have gained 8 points over the last 11 league games on Palace, but we have also lost our last four games.

Here’s what the bottom places look like after today’s games.

The derby game between Newcastle and Sunderland becomes even bigger tomorrow – if that’s possible –  with both north-east clubs now second and third bottom of the league.

A defeat for Newcastle tomorrow would put us in even further trouble and we simply must win this game.
