Yes I know it is only five matches in…but just imagine how funny it would be, if after this latest round of matches, Newcastle were top four in the Premier League table?
After the readiness to have a go at Rafa Benitez and his players after the opening two defeats, what would the media be saying if this was the case on Sunday night?
These are the Premier League matches this weekend….
Friday 15 September
Bournemouth v Brighton (8pm)
Saturday 16 September
Crystal Palace v Southampton (12.30)
Huddersfield Town v Leicester City (3pm)
Liverpool v Burnley (3pm)
Newcastle v Stoke (3pm)
Watford v Manchester City (3pm)
West Brom v West Ham (3pm)
Tottenham v Swansea (5.30pm)
Sunday 17 September
Chelsea v Arsenal (1.30pm)
Manchester United v Everton (4pm)
….and this is how the Premier League table looks before this weekend’s games (15 September 2017):
‘All’ that would need to happen for Newcastle to be sitting in a Monday morning Champions League spot, assuming NUFC beat Stoke of course, is for…
Manchester City to beat Watford
Huddersfield to fail to beat Leicester
West Ham get at least a draw at West Brom
Liverpool and Burnley to play out a draw
The things you daydream about when waiting for Friday afternoon to be over at work!
