The astonishing stat held by Rafa Benitez that will give you a boost ahead of Bournemouth tomorrow

An incredible stat has emerged ahead of tomorrow’s game with Bournemouth, highlighting that Rafa Benitez has lost just ONE of his last 58 home matches in the Premier League on a Saturday.

Not only that, Rafa Benitez has won all five Premier League home games played on a Saturday with Newcastle.

Wins over West Ham, Stoke City, Crystal Palace this season and victories against Swansea and Crystal Palace at the back end of the 2015-16 season highlight his immaculate record on a Saturday with NUFC in the top flight – a stat that bodes well for tomorrow’s visit of Bournemouth.

An impressive record both at Newcastle and across his time as a Premier League. You have to go back to March 2007 to find the last time he lost a home game in the Premier League on a Saturday.  He’s won 47, drawn 10 and lost just on of his last 58 at home in the top flight:

As revealed by The Chronicle, Rafa has an unbeaten run of 31 consecutive home matches in the Premier League to have kicked off on a Saturday – a feat that puts him at fourth on the all-time list for this achievement!

Hopefully he can work his magic once again tomorrow and help us to a much needed win.
