If United win against the Tigers at the KC Stadium, then Newcastle United will retain their top-flight status for next season even if they lose to West Ham United at St. James’ Park.
The Red Devils have virtually nothing to play for, as they have secured a top-four finish in the Premier League and are unlikely to end up third due to Arsenal’s superior goal difference.
Newcastle legend Shearer has pleaded with United to pick up all three points against Hull.
As you know I've always been a big fan of Man U..... Come on United!!! #savethetoon— Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) May 24, 2015
Newcastle are in control of their destiny: if they win against West Ham, then they will be safe irrespective of the result in Hull.
The problem is that John Carver’s side have lost nine of their last 10 Premier League games and are in abysmal form.
Confidence is low in the Newcastle camp, and it will not come as a surprise if West Ham register a big win at St. James’ Park this afternoon.
