A potentially massive night in store for Newcastle United tonight, even though they aren’t even playing…
After the drama, excitement, madness, stupidity…of the January transfer window, we are back to the tedium of the actual Premier League matches.
I don’t think I can remember quite so many Premier League matches on a Tuesday night, with eight games.
Meaning that Newcastle United fans and players will know where they stand when they take on Everton at Goodison Park tomorrow with 15 Premier League matches remaining.
This is how the bottom half of the Premier League table looks at the moment (number of points before each club):
28 West Brom
The best way it would look after tonight would be exactly the same as above, only with West Brom and Crystal Palace having an extra three points. However, if everything went pear-shaped, this is how the Premier League could look before Newcastle United kick-off against Everton:
28 West Brom
These are the Tuesday night fixtures:
Arsenal v Southampton
Crystal Palace v Bournemouth
Leicester v Liverpool
Man Utd v Stoke
Norwich v Tottenham
Sunderland v Man City
West Brom v Swansea
West Ham v Aston Villa
(Wednesday night: Everton v Newcastle, Watford v Chelsea)
Of all the fixtures, I would say Norwich beating Tottenham would be the worst result of the eight games, although there again I don’t fancy the thought of the mackems beating Man City either…
