Huge sigh of relief for NUFC as Fulham fail to capitalise in crucial clash at Crystal Palace

A lucky escape for Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon, with Fulham spurning a host of missed chances in a frustrating 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace.

A win would’ve moved the Cottagers just a point behind us, however the gap has stayed at three ahead of their upcoming games against Tottenham, Liverpool and Man City – making this a big missed opportunity for Scott Parker’s side.

This comes after last night’s 1-1 draw with Wolves left us momentarily four points clear of the drop zone – a result that felt like two points dropped based on some of the big chances missed and injuries to key players Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin.

After Fulham’s result in today’s early kick off, the Premier League table looks as follows ahead of Burnley’s trip to Spurs (2pm):

Although it still feels like two points dropped for us last night, the fact Fulham failed to better our result and narrow the gap against a truly awful Palace side feels like a lucky escape in the end.

After all, they now play Tottenham, Liverpool and Man City in their next three – meanwhile we face West Brom, Aston Villa and Brighton in that time.

It’s horrible to watch and makes you wish we’d beaten Wolves last night, but Fulham could’ve easily won this one on another day…

  1. its so bad when you worry about another team and not your own
    an awful palace side that beat you at st james park what does that say
    the thing you need to be worried about is saint maxim and almiron if they are out for a while
    then that is bad news as with out them and wilson you are an average championship team
