The Newcastle United players had their best and perfect form going on which put them on top
Along with MU, Fulham is one of the two most impressive teams in the Premier League recently.
And this “rookie” has won the last 4 matches, including defeating Leicester and Chelsea.
So with 12 maximum points, Fulham rose to 6th place in the rankings before the 20th round started.
Newcastle vs Fulham all on releasesky live football match today
Before the 20th round, Fulham was still above Liverpool and only 4 points behind the 4th ranked team, MU
With 31 points, Fulham probably does not need to be too concerned about the relegation goal that this club set at the beginning of the season.
Newcastle seems to have slowed down recently. After winning all 6 matches, Newcastle only collected 2 points from the last 2 matches. Miguel Almiron and his teammates drew goalless respectively with Leeds and Arsenal.
In fact, drawing Arsenal was a really positive result for Newcastle. And in the split with Leeds, the players led by coach Eddie Howe were relatively ‘uncharacteristic’ in the finish.
Playing at home promises to bring advantages to Newcastle. This club won the last 4/5 home matches in the English Premier League. Newcastle also did not concede a goal in the last 4 “guests” in the Premier League framework.
Another advantage that Newcastle possesses against Fulham: fitness. Less than 72 hours after the match against Chelsea, Fulham had to compete with Newcastle, again away.
SO therefore with just those advantages, Newcastle promises to beat Fulham on Sunday (January 15).
