The Premier League form table over the past seven rounds of matches makes pleasant viewing/reading for Newcastle fans.

The season kicked off of course with defeats to both Tottenham and Huddersfield, with predictions of tough times ahead from both Newcastle fans and the media.

However, a 3-0 home win kicked the season off properly for Rafa’s team in the third fixture and the side have rarely looked back from that point.

Newcastle’s record in those past seven Premier League matches is won four, drawn 2, and lost one, goals for 10 and goals against five.

The results in order:

Newcastle 3 West Ham 0

Swansea 0 Newcastle 1

Newcastle 2 Stoke 1

Brighton 1 Newcastle 0

Newcastle 1 Liverpool 1

Southampton 2 Newcastle 2

Newcastle 1 Crystal Palace 0

Comparing Newcastle’s points total in these past seven matches is uplifting, only Manchester City (looking a bit decent this season…) and Tottenham have accumulated more points.
