Best and worst case scenarios with other Premier League results for Newcastle United before Aston Villa

3 weeks ago
Share

Newcastle United have to wait until Monday night before they visit Aston Villa.a

The televised match meaning a very long 16 days between fixtures.

There are eight Premier League games on Saturday, with one on Sunday.

Potentially a benefit for Newcastle United to see how the other 18 clubs get on before their match.

This is how the Premier League table looks before the 13th round of fixtures and then this weekend’s fixtures.

Saturday 23 November

West Ham United v Tottenham (12.30pm)

Arsenal v Southampton (3pm)

Bournemouth v Wolves (3pm)

Brighton v Leicester (3pm)

Crystal Palace v Liverpool (3pm)

Everton v Norwich (3pm)

Watford v Burnley (3pm)

Manchester City v Chelsea (5.30pm)

Sunday 24 November

Sheffield United v Man Utd (4.30pm)

Monday 25 November 

Aston Villa v Newcastle (8pm)

If all the fixtures did go Newcastle’s way (the higher team in the league beating the lower one), this is how the Premier League would look on Monday before the NUFC game, number of points then club name:

37 Liverpool

29 Leicester

29 Chelsea

25 Man City

20 Sheff Utd

20 Arsenal

19 Wolves

18 Burnley

17 Tottenham

17 Everton

16 Man Utd

16 Bournemouth

15 Brighton

15 Palace

15 Newcastle United

13 West Ham

11 Aston Villa

8 Watford

8 Southampton

7 Norwich

In that best case scenario it would mean that if Newcastle beat Villa, they would go level with Burnley on 18 points, in 9th place. NUFC still seven points above the relegation zone even if they lost at Villa.

Whilst this is how it would look if all the results went the wrong way (lower team beating higher one), number of points then club name:

34 Liverpool

28 Man City

26 Leicester

26 Chelsea

19 Man Utd

19 Bournemouth

18 Brighton

18 Palace

17 Sheff Utd

17 Arsenal

16 Wolves

16 West Ham

15 Burnley

15 Newcastle United

14 Tottenham

14 Everton

11 Aston Villa

11 Watford

11 Southampton

10 Norwich

In that worst case scenario it would mean that if Newcastle beat Villa, they would go level with Brighton and Palace on 18 points, in 9th place. NUFC still four points above the relegation zone even if they lost at Villa – although things would look a lot tighter at the bottom.
