Only one team has stayed up in Newcastle United’s scenario, and head coach Eddie Howe admits that “we need to get that win as quickly as we can,” so will the Magpies be able to stay up?
After a 2-0 loss to Arsenal on Saturday, his team remains at the bottom of the Premier League table, with no wins in 13 games.
Since replacing the dismissed Steve Bruce, Howe has only been in charge for two of them. After contracting Covid-19, he watched last weekend’s 3-3 draw with Brentford from his hotel room, but he was at Emirates Stadium on Saturday to witness his side’s valiant performance.
Newcastle is six points short of safety, despite being one of the richest teams in the world with their recent £305 million Saudi ownership.
Their next two games might have a big impact on how potential new players perceive them when the January transfer window opens. On Tuesday, they face Norwich, and on Saturday, they face Burnley, the other two clubs in the relegation zone.
Howe stated, “All we have to do now is look at the first one [against Norwich].” “In football, momentum is everything. We need to acquire that win as soon as possible.
