Revealed how many points fans expect Newcastle to end the Premier League season with

Yesterday we asked the question, how many points will Newcastle United get from their final 12 Premier League games?

The relegation fight is unbelievably tight and despite Watford’s shock 4-1 smashing of Chelsea on Monday night lifting them slightly out of the pack, positions 12th to 19th are only separated by three points.

As the Premier League stands now, in advance of the NUFC home match with Man Utd, Rafa’s team are in 16th position and have got 25 points from 26 games.

Always very difficult to tell how many points will be needed for survival in the top tier but just how many more points did Newcastle fans think the Magpies will accumulate?

The 12 remaining Newcastle games are evenly split between home and away and are as follows:

HOME: Man Utd, Southampton, Huddersfield, Arsenal, West Brom, Chelsea

AWAY: Bournemouth, Liverpool, Spurs, Leicester, Everton, Watford

You had the odd attention seeker going for the full 36 points…but 80% of Newcastle fans predicted somewhere between 8 points and 15 points (full results and individual percentages below).

The average overall worked out at marginally over 12 points, which would give Newcastle a final points total of 37 points.

As a guide, the number of points needed for safety (one more than the 18th placed club) have recently been:

35 – 2016/17

38 – 2015/16

36 – 2014/15

34 – 2013/14

37 – 2012/13

37 – 2011/12

40 – 2010/11

So the predicted 37 points would appear to give Newcastle a decent chance but will this season need more?
