The Premier League recent form table very much shows where both Newcastle United and Manchester United are overall.
Manchester United are rated fourth in terms of Premier League form over the last half dozen matches and are also fourth in the current Premier League table standings.
In Newcastle’s case, they are eleventh in that Premier League recent form table, as well as eleventh in the overall table…
Man Utd’s last six results with latest one listed first;
Man Utd 2 Sunderland 0
Swansea 2 Man Utd 1
Man Utd 3 Burnley 1
West Ham 1 Man Utd 1
Man Utd 3 Leicester 1
QPR 0 Man Utd 2
A recent record of four wins, one draw and a defeat.
The win over Villa has given Newcastle a much better look in terms of recent form, as well as hopefully some much needed confidence and belief.
The last six results now show two wins, two draws and two defeat, the kind of middle of the road form that is right up Mike Ashley’s street.
Newcastle’s last six also listed with the latest result first;
Newcastle 1 Aston Villa 0
Man City 5 Newcastle 0
Palace 1 Newcastle 1
Newcastle 1 Stoke 1
Hull 0 Newcastle 3
Newcastle 1 Southampton 2
The last two away matches have handed the Mancs a defeat at Swansea and near defeat at West Ham, where they scored a very late goal in injury time to equalise.
Manchester United have climbed to a Champions League spot despite rarely showing true quality, so the question is whether John Carver can prove they are better than what the showed against Aston Villa. It was a win but they will need to be a lot more convincing if they are to take anything on Wednesday night.
