Newcastle United drop, Aston Villa climb & Leeds stay the same - Premier League points per game table

We take a look at the Premier League points per game with Newcastle United and their rivals playing a different number of games at this stage in the season.

Many Premier League clubs are still playing catch up after having games re-arranged, either through Covid-19 or being involved in cup action.

Fortunately for Newcastle United, they’re fully up-to-date with just Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal and Burnley left to play this season.

Ten wins in 2022 - form better only by Jurgen Klopp’s title-chasing Reds, has seen the Magpies surge up to ninth position in the table.

The team below United, Leicester City, have played two matches less, while Wolves in 8th are one game behind Eddie Howe’s side.

So, in terms of points per game, how would the Premier League table look? Would Newcastle remain in the top 10? NewcastleWorld takes a look.

Of course, finishing in the top half has never been the aim for United this campaign, especially given they were in a relegation battle only a few weeks ago. But certainly, finishing anywhere near, would be a huge testament to the job Howe has carried out on Tyneside.
