Newcastle have just taken another big step towards Premier League safety, with Fulham suffering defeat at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night.
Scott Parker’s side forced Edouard Mendy into a few decent first half saves, but goals from Kai Havertz either side of half time secured a 2-0 win for Chelsea – a result that comes after Brighton moved 10 clear of the drop zone after beating Leeds in today’s 3pm kick off.
This leaves Fulham NINE behind us having played a game more, meaning they must now win at least three of their last four games and hope we don’t pick up another point.
Here’s the latest Premier League table ahead of our clash with Arsenal tomorrow, along with our remaining five fixtures compared to Fulham’s four:
Newcastle (5 games) – Arsenal (H), Leicester (A), Man City (H), Sheffield United (H), Fulham (A).
Fulham (4 games) – Burnley (H), Southampton (A), Man Utd (A), Newcastle (H).
Win tomorrow and we’re safe.
