Premier League clubs do Newcastle a favour on Sunday to leave this table ahead of interesting midweek
Some interesting Premier League games on Sunday.
Things looked to be going against Newcastle United but a pretty positive ending to this round of fixtures.
No games on Monday night as this is the Amazon Prime midweek round of Premier League matches, with games spread over Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and shown live.
Newcastle’s 2-2 draw against Manchester City left NUFC in fourteenth place on Saturday night.
It looked as though Steve Bruce’s team would/could drop to 16th as Sunday’s games took an unexpected direction.
Aston Villa took the lead at Old Trafford, while Everton scored first at the King Power, if they had held on it would have seen both clubs go ahead of Newcastle.
Instead though Man Utd came back and got a 2-2 draw against Villa, whilst happily Leicester turned it around and after equalising, got a last minute win to keep Everton fourth bottom instead of above Newcastle.
Elsewhere, second bottom Norwich almost moved within three points of NUFC, leading twice against Arsenal, only for the Gunners to scrape a 2-2 draw.
Here are the weekend’s results and Premier League table on Sunday night:
Saturday 30 November
Liverpool 2 Brighton 1
Newcastle United 2 Manchester City 2
Chelsea 0 West Ham 1
Tottenham 3 Bournemouth 2
Southampton 2 Watford 1
Burnley 0 Crystal Palace 2
Sunday 1 December
Norwich City 2 Arsenal 2
Wolves 1 Sheffield United 1
Leicester 2 Everton 1
Manchester United 2 Aston Villa 2
Ahead of Newcastle away at Sheffield United, the key game at the bottom sees Southampton at home to Norwich on Wednesday night.
If either win then it will start to put pressure on those above. Norwich could go within two points of Newcastle but a win for Southampton would put them only a point behind NUFC, making next Sunday’s Newcastle v Southampton match looking massive, if Steve Bruce’s team don’t win at Sheffield United, or at least get a draw against the in-form side.
