It’s the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday with all games kicking off at 3:00pm.
The three relegated teams will be Huddersfield, Fulham, and Cardiff City and we will be playing one of those teams, Fulham at Craven Cottage – and we need a win in the game to finish the season on a high.
The Premier League title will be won by either Manchester City or Liverpool (for the first time ever) with City being the favorites.
Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson very rarely predicts a win for Newcastle and good to form – Merson thinks it will be a 2-2 draw on Sunday at Fulham.
That will be a big disappointment if that turns to be the scoreline after we have picked up just one point in the previous two games at Brighton and home to Liverpool.
Paul Merson – Sky Sports pundit
This is what Merson has told Sky Sports:
“I hope Scott Parker gets the Fulham job.”
“They’ve shown a bit of respectability towards the end, they’ve had a plan at least, and Newcastle are a team who are hard to play against at the moment, as we saw on Saturday night.
“I think both of them will have a go.”
“Prediction – Fulham 2 Newcastle 2”
Update – Scott Parker has today been appointed the permanent Fulham manager who will attempt to bring the Craven Cottage side straight back to the Premier League next season.
This is what Scott said on his appointment today:
“I’m delighted to be appointed head coach of Fulham Football Club and I thank the chairman for entrusting me with this responsibility, as well as the support and encouragement that both he and Tony Khan have provided me.”
“The players, staff, and fans have all been fantastic with me since I took temporary charge.”
“We are now all focused on ending this campaign with a positive result on Sunday against Newcastle and look forward to preparations for the new season, which have already begun.”
We wish the former Newcastle midfielder all the very best in his future management career – if not for Sunday’s game.
