Arsenal legend Ian Wright has said on BBC 606 that he expects Newcastle United not to win any of their final three games of the Premier League season.
The Magpies have lost their last eight league matches and are in serious danger of getting relegated to the Championship.
John Carver’s team will face West Bromwich Albion at St. James’ Park on Saturday, before taking on Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road and West Ham United at home.
Former England international Wright believes that Newcastle will drop points in all of those matches and said on BBC 606 on Sunday: “I can't see Newcastle winning another game this season.”
Wright is not the first ex-footballer to forecast doom for Newcastle. Former Magpies striker Michael Owen made a similar remark last month, when Carver’s side were 14th in the Premier League table with 35 points from 33 matches.
"If there were eight or 10 games left, I’d be thinking, 'Newcastle could be going down here’,” the former Liverpool and Manchester United striker said on BT Sport’s Football Tonight show. “I can't see how they are going to get a point at the moment.”
Since Owen made those comments (click here to read more), Newcastle have lost twice, and there is a distinct possibility that both he and Wright could be proven right.
Newcastle are playing badly at the moment, and the players are consistently failing to deliver.
While the likes of Aston Villa, Hull City and Sunderland are also in grave danger, the fact that the Magpies are only two points above the relegation zone should be worrying.
