Newcastle fans think next two games will decide their fate

Newcastle fans have been sharing their thoughts on the impending relegation battle, and most agree their next two fixtures could decide their season.

Rafa Benitez’s men were swept aside without too much of a fight at Anfield on Saturday, losing 2-0 to goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. Needless to say, these are not the fixtures that will determine the relegation race.

Newcastle’s next two matches are against Southampton and Huddersfield – both at St. James’ Park. The Magpies had lost just one league fixture in 2018 before the trip to Anfield, so they will feel confident about getting something from both games against fellow relegation strugglers.

Southampton, who currently sit one point below Newcastle, visit St. James’ Park this Saturday. Newcastle don’t have another league fixture for three weeks after that, when they welcome David Wagner’s Huddersfield Town to Tyneside.

Benitez’s team follow those two games with trips to Leicester and Everton either side of a home fixture with Arsenal. They then end the season with a visit to Watford sandwiched between home games against struggling West Brom and Chelsea.
