Eddie Howe and his gamers going through Luton at St James’ Park.
As a Newcastle United fan although, take a look at this weekend’s different Premier League fixtures and have a take into consideration what you’d prefer to occur and what’s seemingly when it comes to outcomes:

That is how the desk appears to be like on Saturday morning earlier than this weekend’s Premier League fixtures are performed:
Current occasions seeing sights lowered for NUFC.
Nonetheless, after that gorgeous dominant victory at Villa, perhaps a platform for some actual optimism now, so what about these Premier League fixtures that includes golf equipment in direction of the higher finish of the desk?
Kicking issues off this match at Goodison Park within the early Saturday kick-off.
Tottenham choosing up some okay outcomes nonetheless however not convincing, fortunate to win 3-2 at dwelling to Brentford in midweek. Everton in the meantime have fallen again into the relegation zone with solely two factors from their final 5 video games, though Sean Dyche now seems to be attempting to bore the opposition to loss of life and choose up goalless attracts in an try to remain up, 0-0 at dwelling to Villa and away at Fulham of their final two video games. I believe the scouse mackems would possibly sneak one other level at this time towards Spurs.
Media darlings Brighton had solely received three of their final 15 Premier League matches after which had been 2-0 down inside three minutes and hammered 4-0 lastly by Luton in midweek. They’re up towards a Palace facet who seemed to be dropping like a stone themselves with no wins in eight, solely to then scramble wins at dwelling towards Brentford and Sheffield United in two of their final three PL matches. They’ve that weird ‘derby’ factor happening between them and it completed 1-1 at Selhurst Park in December, so might be related at this time.
Villa had been driving their luck earlier than the house hammering by Newcastle United, very fortunate to get a late winner at dwelling to Burnley, their solely Premier League win within the final 5 video games. That run began with a really lucky draw towards Sheffield United when equalising deep in added time. Sheffield United have nonetheless solely received two PL matches all season BUT their final six dwelling video games do embody these two dwelling wins over Wolves and Brentford, in addition to their final dwelling recreation seeing a 2-2 draw towards West Ham. The Blades will throw every thing at this one and with Villa trying fragile, something may occur.
A few attention-grabbing matches on Sunday, involving 4 of the golf equipment above Newcastle United.
West Ham v Man U is one other recreation the place any of the three outcomes may feasibly occur. Neither facet enjoying that effectively lately and really unpredictable. This pair are instantly above Newcastle United so factors will go lacking someplace, a draw on the London Stadium would swimsuit properly as long as Newcastle can ship at this time.
The ultimate weekend fixture is on Monday night time when Brentford host Man Metropolis. Clearly the return of Ivan Toney has boosted the Bees and naturally final season, Man Metropolis solely misplaced 5 of 38 Premier League video games and two of them had been to Brentford!
If Arsenal win at dwelling to Liverpool on Sunday, a Man Metropolis win would take them to 2 factors off the highest with a recreation in hand. Doubtlessly an enormous weekend in figuring out how issues take a look at the very prime.
In fact, the one actually necessary match this weekend, is the one at St James’ Park.
Beating Luton might be large, with then Forest away and Bournemouth at dwelling. A trio of matches which, no less than on paper, look greater than winnable if Newcastle play effectively.
Wins these three video games would take Newcastle to 41 factors from 25 video games, then if matching final season’s 27 factors from the final 13 PL video games of the season, would see NUFC find yourself on 68 factors. Which was sufficient final season to get fourth place (Liverpool had been fifth with 67 factors)
Doubtlessly, nonetheless all to play for.
