With Chelsea beating Liverpool 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday they are within 3 points of 3rd placed Liverpool in the league table and 2 points behind Tottenham, who are currently in 4th place.
So it doesn’t take a genius to see that Newcastle’s final two games of the season against Spurs and Chelsea will have a massive impact on who will finish in 4th place in the league and get into the Champions League.
We play Tottenham tomorrow night at Wembley and then in our last game of the season we are at home to Chelsea on Sunday.
That’s one reason we were hoping to get something out of our previous three games at Everton, at home to West Brom and at Watford.
Mauricio Pochettino – talented Tottenham manager
But they were three defeats so we are hoping that will change tomorrow night.
Our lads have lacked the intensity they showed earlier this year but these two games are immense, and they are against two of the top six clubs in England.
Its strange but we may even have a better chance of winning these games then against those clubs lower us in the table.
Anyway, it’s an excellent opportunity to finish the season on a high.
It would be a disappointment if we lose these last two games and finish somewhere in the bottom half of the table.
Only three games ago we were in 10th place with a chance to even finish in 8th position.
But we suppose that even if we lose both games, we will be happy enough that we survived the season.
We know we will be happy enough that we survived the season.
Here’s the current position we have in the league.
Let’s hope that Mike Ashley comes to his senses and offers Rafa more money to spend this summer.
He doesn’t seem to be offering him much at the moment.
