Six games into the 2018 / 2019 season and Newcastle United have managed to accumulate just two points from the eighteen available.
It’s not the start to the season we envisaged, and it is a start that has left us in the bottom three and fearful of being involved in a relegation scrap.
But, it is also fair to say those first six games have included some tough fixtures with Newcastle welcoming Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Arsenal to St James Park whilst also having to take on Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
However, our view is that the next six games will be amongst the most crucial when it comes to how our season will pan out, with four of those next six games at home against teams you feel we have a chance of beating.
Therefore, our question to you, looking at the six forthcoming games below is:
• Newcastle United v Leicester City
• Manchester United v Newcastle United
• Newcastle United v Brighton and Hove Albion
• Southampton v Newcastle United
• Newcastle United v Watford
• Newcastle United v Bournemouth
how many points do you see Rafael Benitez side accumulating?
Personally, I’d be disappointed if we got less than 9.
Please feel free to drop into our comments facility how many points you believe we’ll claim.
