NUFC take huge step towards Premier League safety without kicking a ball on Saturday

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.

    Same again next season I won’t be buying a season ticket

    5 games to go and it’s pretty much accepted that we’re safe.

    There must be a lot of disappointed so called Toon fans out there.

    I’ve supported Newcastle for 40 years, and I have never once hoped that they lose a match or wanted them to get relegated.
    So to all you fans scheming for a way to get rid of Bruce – SHAME ON YOU!

  2. Steve Bruce has had to deal mostly what he has been given. Many managers would have walked away like Rafa. But he has stuck at at it despite a lot of agro from a section of so called fans and covid and injuries to key players. When we get to normality I hope that those who have been so abusive stay away even if it means nearly an empty stadium.
