Newcastle United Top-six Odds: 9/4 odds taken 1202 GMT, Tuesday 21 June

After last season’s takeover, Newcastle United are now one of the richest clubs in the world. It remains to be seen whether the Magpies will be Premier League title contenders in the not-so-distant future, but United have been tipped to have a fine season under Eddie Howe.

Not even the most optimistic of Newcastle fans will fancy their title chances, but the top six is a strong possibility. Newcastle already have one of the most loyal fanbases in the world, and they could be a force to be reckoned with if Howe can get things right on the pitch.

In our in-depth preview, we take a look back at Newcastle’s topsy-turvy 2021-22 Premier League season and look ahead to the upcoming campaign. How many superstar signings will the club make this summer? Who are their biggest challengers? Can United break into the European places?

2021-22 Review: Stunning second half to the season

Newcastle started their season in woeful fashion under Steve Bruce, who was under pressure from minute one. The Magpies went a staggering 14 Premier League matches at the start of the campaign without winning. Despite Howe taking over from Bruce, they remained rooted to the foot of the table until they finally picked up their first win against fellow strugglers Burnley on 4th December.

Newcastle then failed to win again until late January, but their fortunes really turned around after a 1-0 victory at Leeds United. They went on to win five and draw one of the following six to fire their way out of trouble and up the Premier League table. From late December to mid-March, the Magpies won six and drew three of nine.

Our betting prediction:
Top Midlands club – Leicester City

Newcastle also finished in strong style, winning six of the last eight. In their final home game, United beat Arsenal 2-0 before edging past Burnley at Turf Moor on the last day. Under Howe, the Tyneside club won a staggering 12 of their last 18 games to finish in 11th place on 49 points. Overall, they won 13, drew ten and lost 15.

Our betting prediction:
Erling Haaland top goalscorer

Newcastle United Key Facts

  • Newcastle are now one of the richest football clubs in world football
  • The Magpies won 12 of their past 18 matches last term
  • Despite failing to win any of their opening 14, United went on to finish in 11th spot
  • Newcastle have won seven of their past eight Premier League fixtures at St James’ Park


Magpies Transfer News: More big names in at St James’?

Naturally, with such a huge transfer kitty available at St James’, Newcastle are being linked with a whole host of players right now. Young Frenchman Hugo Ekitike is on the verge of signing, while Newcastle are reportedly leading the race to sign England international goalkeeper Nick Pope. Matt Targett has completed a permanent move to Newcastle.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin could leave Everton this summer, and the England star will not be shy of suitors. Newcastle are ready to table a bid according to recent reports. Nathan Ake, Yannick Carrasco and Fabian Ruiz are just a few names also being mentioned. Newcastle’s starting XI could look very interesting when Nottingham Forest visit St James in early August.

2022-23 Key Fixtures: Magpies host PL new boys on opening weekend

Big-spending Newcastle start their 2022-23 season with a home game against newly promoted Forest on 6th August. They then travel to Brighton & Hove Albion before entertaining Premier League champions Manchester City on matchday three.

On Boxing Day, the Magpies make the trip to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City before kicking off 2023 with a game in the capital against Arsenal. The last home match will be against Leicester before finishing up the campaign with an intriguing-looking fixture with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Who Are United’s Biggest Challengers: Can Howe’s troops sneak into Europe?

Backed by very generous owners, Newcastle have an open chequebook this summer. They made some huge signings back in January, and Howe’s Magpies won several matches to finish in 11th spot. It was a remarkable turnaround for Newcastle, who spent the first half of the season in the bottom three.

At the time of writing, Newcastle are the seventh favourites behind the top six to win the title. It may be too early to think about being top dogs in England, but the Magpies may just break into Europe this term, while the cup competitions could also take priority. Who will be their biggest rivals this term?

Manchester United Preview: Can Ten Hag hit the ground running?

Since the great Sir Alex Ferguson departed Old Trafford, Manchester United have been starved of success, and the glory days are a distant memory for the record English champions. Last term, the underperforming Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked midway through the 2021-22 campaign, with interim boss Ralf Rangnick doing a decent enough job until the end.

United have been well off the pace in recent years, while rivals Man City and Liverpool have dominated England’s top division. It is likely to take Ten Hag time to settle into his new surroundings, but the Red Devils could be a team to watch out if the Dutchman hits the ground running. You can currently get the eye-opening odds of 25/1 for United to win the Premier League title for a first time in a decade.

Tottenham Hotspur Preview: Conte to build on last season?

In Antonio Conte, Tottenham Hotspur have one of the best managers in world football. The Italian guided Spurs to a top-four finish against all odds last term, with the north Londoners edging out Arsenal in the race to the final UEFA Champions League place. Conte described the achievement as one of the best of his career.

We never really know what to expect from this current crop of Tottenham players. However, with Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son up top, the Lilywhites have one of the best strike forces in the Premier League, which could get even stronger this summer. Conte is more than capable of attracting the world’s best players to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and the Lilywhites could challenge this season.

Arsenal Preview: Gunners to break into top four?

After years away from the Champions League, getting back into the top four will be Arsenal’s priority this season. The Gunners missed out on the top four in agonising fashion last season, with rivals Tottenham pipping them to the post on the last day.

Arsenal are definitely building something good under Mikel Arteta, but winning the Premier League title seems way off right now. Still, the Gunners will be desperate to bring Champions League football back to the Emirates Stadium this time around.

West Ham United Preview: Europe again for the Hammers?

Under the experienced David Moyes, West Ham United have been the surprise package in the Premier League over the past couple of seasons. The Hammers finished sixth in the 2020-21 campaign to book their spot in the Europa League.

West Ham have turned themselves into a genuine top-four contender, and they have qualified for Europe via their league position two years running for the first time in the club’s history. The Irons have a tough start against the Premier League champions, but West Ham fear no foe right now and will relish the opportunity of upsetting one of the big boys early doors.

Leicester City Preview: Foxes back in the top six?

The 2020-21 season was a memorable one for Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester. The Midlands club beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final to win the trophy for the first time in their history. They finished fifth in the league, losing out on a place in the top four on the final day for the second season running.

Leicester failed to replicate those heights last season, as they spent the majority of their campaign in and around mid-table. However, Rodgers is one of the most experienced managers in the Premier League, and the Foxes will surely improve on last season’s eighth-place finish. Will Leicester be in the mix for the European slots this time around?

Players to Watch Out For in the 2022-23 Season: Guimaraes to continue fine form?

Allan Saint-Maximin showed glimpses of his world-class ability last season. The Frenchman is capable of the sublime, and he certainly flourished at times in the 2021-22 campaign. Saint-Maximin, who arrived in a £16m deal from Nice in 2019, netted five Premier League goals and made 37 league and cup appearances last term.

Callum Wilson had an injury-ravaged season and was restricted to just 18 appearances. Nevertheless, the former Bournemouth man still managed to rack up eight Premier League goals to finish as Newcastle’s top scorer. Wilson scored both goals on the final day of the season.

In terms of January signings, Brazilian ace Bruno Guimaraes had the biggest impact. Having signed in a big-money move from Lyon, Guimaraes settled in right away and helped himself to five goals in his last 12 appearances of the season. The 24-year-old is already a huge hit with the Magpies fans and could be the player to watch out for this season.

Our Newcastle Predictions: Europe beckons for Magpies

These are without doubt exciting times for the long-suffering Newcastle fans. The sleeping giant has awoken, and the Magpies are more than capable of putting the cat amongst the pigeons at the top end of the Premier League this season.

It might be too early to think about the top four, but we fancy Howe’s side to secure a place in the top six. At the time of writing, Newcastle are priced at 9/4 for a top-six finish.
