The Question we are asking today is: ‘How many goals will Newcastle United strikers Andy Carroll, Joelinton and Dwight Gayle score in the remaining 13 Premier League games’

In the Premier League, of the clubs outside the relegation zone, only Burnley have scored less goals than Newcastle United.

A feeble 26 goals scored so far in Newcastle’s 25 Premier League matches.

In the opening 23 PL games, Newcastle United had scored only 22 goals, with Dwight Gayle getting 10 of them.

Then in the win over Southampton, Callum Wilson limped off the pitch, with Newcastle’s only credible goalscorer set to be out for most, if not all, of the rest of the season.

When you have only West Brom (55 goals) having conceded more than Newcastle United (43 goals) this is looking a dangerous scenario for NUFC, especially as Steve Bruce’s team have conceded two or more goals in nine of their last eleven matches.

Clearly, as a team who no longer can reliably defend after 19 months of Steve Bruce management, Newcastle United are desperate for more goals at the other end.

There appears to be three possibilities with Andy Carroll, Joelinton and Dwight Gayle to choose from.

In the two matches since Callum Wilson’s injury, Steve Bruce picked Dwight Gayle to start against Chelsea and brought both Carroll and Joelinton on as subs.

Then at Man Utd, Bruce instantly dropped Gayle after one start and played Joelinton, before later bringing on Gayle from the bench.

This is how each of the three strikers have performed in the Premier League during this season so far and Steve Bruce’s entire 19 months at St James Park.
