English Premiership side, Newcastle United say they have not given up yet this season. The team is clearly in the relegation zone after just 25 points in 31 games this season. The Magpies are in 19th position currently, nine points above Aston Villa which are in last position.
The team believes home games will decide their fate at season end, as they have four home games of seven matches left. Newcastle will play Southampton on the 9th April in an away match, Swansea at home next week, then EPL giant, Manchester City. Liverpool, Crystal Palace, 20th placed Aston Villa and second-placed and in-form Tottenham on the last round of games this season.
If the squad falls to Southampton this week and Norwich defeat crystal palace in an away match, thus, increasing the gap, then relegation would be imminent for The Magpies. Currently, Crystal Palace are in 16th position with 34 points with a game in hand, Norwich in 17th with 31 points from 32 games. Sunderland is 18th with 27 points leaving Newcastle in 19th with just 25 points and a game in hand.
Newcastle are trying to keep their hopes alive by fighting this relegation threat but it seems the season is pretty much decided, with just this week’s round of matches being key deciders.
The team has had a very poor showing with the last two ending in a disgraceful 4-0 scoreline. Alan Pardew is trying to stay confident but the season is pretty much over for The magpies. Southampton is always a tough ground for Newcastle with eleven defeats in the last 15 games played in the Premier League. The team is banking on the hopes of getting victories at games played in Saint James Park. With just six points away from Norwich, United need all they can now.
