Premier League form table ahead of Newcastle v Arsenal makes interesting reading
How the Premier League form table looks ahead of Newcastle United taking on Arsenal.
The two clubs meeting at St James Park, 2pm on Sunday.
Steve Bruce hoping to take another step away from the relegation zone.
The longer formline shows only four wins in twenty four matches (all competitions) for Newcastle United.
However, with ASM and Joe Willock turning around the last four matches in the second half, some very late on…the last four games have seen eight points picked up.
Those matches in April helping Newcastle United into seventh place in the Premier League form table below.
Picking up nine points from a possible eighteen, with two wins, three draws and only the one defeat to Brighton.
As for Arsenal, they have one less point and are eleventh in the form table with eight points, due to two wins, two draws and two defeats.
Maybe ominously, their recent form reading: Win, Draw, Lose, Win, Draw, Lose…
With their Europa League semi-final second leg to come on Thursday, interesting to see how many changes Mikel Arteta makes with realistically nothing to play for in the league (see table below), the Gunners tenth and adrift of even Europa League qualification.
The fact that Fulham are third bottom of this Premier League form table with only one point from their last five matches, underlining why they have really fallen away in these crucial recent weeks.
Here is the Premier League form table which covers the past six matches for all teams:
The last six results for Arsenal with latest one listed first:
Arsenal 0 Everton 1
Arsenal 1 Fulham 1
Sheff Utd 0 Arsenal 3
Arsenal 0 Liverpool 3
West Ham 3 Arsenal 3
Arsenal 2 Tottenham 1
Newcastle’s last six results also listed with the latest result first:
Liverpool 1 Newcastle 1
Newcastle 3 West Ham 2
Burnley 1 Newcastle 2
Newcastle 2 Tottenham 2
Brighton 3 Newcastle 0
This is how the Premier League table currently looks on Saturday morning:
These are all the remaining matches for the four clubs in any way competing for that final relegation place:
Fulham – Chelsea (A), Burnley (H), Southampton (A), Man Utd (A), Newcastle (H)
Brighton – Leeds (H), Wolves (A), West Ham (H), Man City (H), Arsenal (A)
Burnley – West Ham (H), Fulham (A), Leeds (H), Liverpool (H), Sheff Utd (A)
Newcastle United – Arsenal (H), Leicester (A), Man City (H), Sheff Utd (H), Fulham (A)
In reality, Fulham need to win three of their last five matches to stand any small chance of survival, probably four wins needed, which looks unlikely.
