Paul Ince ‘finds it tough’ but tells Newcastle fans will lose today and be relegated

4 years ago

Paul Ince has been considering Newcastle’s match against Bournemouth, as well as where the Magpies will end up after 38 matches.

This afternoon ninth placed Newcastle are home to 19th placed Bournemouth.

Whilst with 14 points from the 10 games so far, Rafa Benitez would only need another 21 points from the remaining 28 games to ensure survival, based on last season – Hull finished third bottom with 34 points.

However, Paul Ince sees a bleak outlook for Newcastle fans and kind of apologises for it…

The former Man Utd and Liverpool midfielder has predicted a 2-1 win for Bournemouth but says ‘I find it tough backing against Newcastle as their fans are brilliant, always supporting their team…’.

When it comes to May 2018, Paul Ince has even worse news for the black and whites.

Alongside Chris Sutton, Jermaine Jenas, and Robbie Savage, Ince has picked his relegation candidates for BT Sport.

As well as Brighton and Crystal Palace, Paul Ince says Newcastle United will also be relegated – all the relegation choices of the four pundits are listed below.

Paul Ince speaking to the Express:

“I find it tough backing against Newcastle as their fans are brilliant, always supporting the team, but they’re almost impossible to predict.

“They obviously were pipped by Burnley on Monday but have had some decent draws against Liverpool and Southampton.

“Bournemouth desperately need the win though – so they’ll be all-out in trying to get it.

“Prediction – Newcastle 1 Bournemouth 2.”
