We have had a fairly easy start to the Premier League season regarding opposition, and we have played only two clubs of the best six clubs in England which are the two Manchester clubs, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Liverpool.
We played Spurs in the first game and were doing very well until Jonjo Shelvey got himself sent off and then we did very well to get a 1-1 draw at home to Liverpool.
Newcastle have 14 points from 11 games in a respectable 11th place in the table and have generally made a good start to the season.
Here’s where we stand today.
But in our next 11 games through January 1st we have to play four of the top six in England – the two Manchester clubs, Arsenal and Chelsea.
Here are the upcoming 11 games to be played over just 44 days starting next Saturday at Manchester United.

There are some tough games in there, and we have to hope that we do well in the games at St. James’ Park against Watford, Leicester City, Everton, Manchester City and Brighton.
Maybe we can take City apart?
If we can get another 14 points out of these 11 games, we’ll be happy enough.
What do you think?
