Newcastle News and Form

Newcastle put on a brave show at home against Liverpool last weekend but ended up losing late in the game by a 3-2 scoreline. That snapped a three-match undefeated streak of form that they had been on prior to that. The away record of Newcastle this season has seen them collect only the three road victories (W8 L7). They have lost just one of their last four games on the road though in the top flight, which was against top six opposition in the form of Arsenal. Newcastle have struggled for away goals this season managing just 14 in total, which is an average of 0.8 per away game.

Only 33% of Newcastle’s away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals and that is because the Magpies have been relatively solid in defence, conceding at an average of 1.3 per road fixture. Of their seven away defeats this season only one of them have been against a side currently sitting in the bottom half of the table. All three of the wins at Newcastle have taken away from St James’s Park have been by a one-goal margin. The Magpies have scored 79% of their away goals in the first period of fixtures, while they have conceded 65% of their away goals after the halftime break. Newcastle have opened the scoring in exactly half of their road fixtures. Only the current bottom four teams in the division have produced fewer league goals than what Newcastle have done this season.

Fulham v Newcastle Predictions

Fulham to win: home soil may count for something here and Fulham at least do have a bit of momentum going behind them at Craven Cottage. Newcastle spent a lot of energy last weekend in trying too match Liverpool. They may just come up short on their trip to London. Fulham to win
