Predicting Newcastle United’s next four games

St James Park

We take a close look at Newcastle United’s Premier League matches against Sunderland, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City.

Sunderland v Newcastle United

Newcastle United will head into the Tyne-Wear derby on a run of poor form, having lost all three of their Premier League games in March.

Given that this is a derby, anything is possible, but Sunderland will fancy their chances of picking up all three points at the Stadium of Light.

The Black Cats are fighting for survival in the English top flight, but they will be prepared for the clash under new manager Dick Advocaat.

Prediction: 2-0

Liverpool v Newcastle United

Liverpool should pick up all three points from this Premier League encounter with ease.

Brendan Rodgers’s side are strong at Anfield, and given the fact that Newcastle United have virtually nothing to play for between now and the end of the season, the Merseyside outfit should not face too much of a problem.

Prediction: 3-0

Newcastle United v Tottenham Hotspur

This will be a tricky game for Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham side, and one they could even lose.

Spurs will probably be favourites, but it is not easy to win against Newcastle in front of over 50,000 fans at St. James’ Park.

Prediction: 2-1

Newcastle United v Swansea City

Playing at home will give Newcastle an advantage, but Swansea are a team who have shown this season that they can take points off the opposition on the road.

One suspects that a single goal could settle the affair at St. James’ Park, but one should not be surprised if the Swans earn a draw.

Prediction: 1-1
