Since the start of 2020, the Magpies have only seen one victory and three draws, meaning they have started the calendar year with only 6 points and are currently sitting 13th in the table. While they may be sitting 7 points above relegation, there are still struggles that need to be addressed.
The team do have three very important matches coming up also that will help decide the fate of their Premiership campaign. Playing away to Crystal Palace on the 22nd of Feb, at home to Burnley on the 29th of Feb and away again to Southampton on the 7th of march. Palace sit just one point below the Magpies, so a win away is crucial to not lose any ground, while Burnley and Southampton are 3 points away and equal respectively. Wins in these next three games can turn the Magpies’ season around.
The Last Three Games
The Magpies have taken away 4 points from their last three games and only managed to score a total of 2 goals, which is not a great performance by any standard.
A loss to Arsenal may be forgiven, if it wasn’t a 4-0 loss. Especially when you begin to think that all the goals came in the second half. Meaning Newcastle had managed to keep the Gunners scoreless until the 54th minute when Aubameyand netted the first goal. To make matters worse, Arsenal where able to net two more in the 90th and in the 5th minute of injury time.
A 0-0 draw at home against Norwich cannot be forgiven, as they are currently sat at the bottom of the table. Newcastle did well to bring home a single point, but the expectations were for them to bring home three. A scoreless event highlights Newcastle’s scoring difficulty even more.
At least away against Everton they managed 2 goals in the 2-2 draw, but again, the 3 points alluded them. However, the Magpies did will to fight back, it was a shame it was too little two late as both goals came in injury time and both from Lejeune in the space of a minute. Everton got their first mark on the scoreboard in the 30th, so Newcastle had plenty of time to retaliate.
Where do They Go Now?
With such important games coming up for the Magpies it is difficult to say what will happen. They only have one home game in the next three and that is against Burnley, who are just 3 points ahead of them in the table. Regardless of how their game against Crystal Palace plays out, it is a must win for the Magpies.
Newcastle United’s season is far from over, but they need to do something soon to improve their performance and work their way up the table.
