Premier League form table over last two months well worth a look for Newcastle United fans

1 year ago

The Premier League form table over the course of these last couple of months points to massive credit to Rafa Benitez.

Since unluckily losing at Chelsea on 12 January 2019, Newcastle United have played eight Premier League matches.

Rafa’s team showing astonishing form in these past nine weeks.

At a time when clubs with bigger squads that have had proper investment, tend to have a growing advantage, Newcastle have bucked the trend.

As you can see below, the top eight performing clubs in their past eight matches, includes the seven who also make up the top seven in the full Premier League table.

The odd one out is Newcastle United who have the fifth best form these past couple of months, with only Man City, Arsenal, Man Utd and Liverpool ahead of them. If that late Wolves goal had been ruled out, as it should have been, Newcastle would actually have had the third best form over these last eight matches.

Getting players back from injury (and the Asian Cup) as well as finally some tangible support (Almiron) in the transfer market, even with a still relatively limited squad, Rafa Benitez has shown what he can do.

In this eight game Premier League form table, Newcastle have beaten Everton, Man City, Cardiff, Burnley and Huddersfield, drawn with Wolves, lost to West Ham and Tottenham.
