Newcastle United’s new predicted Premier League finish v Man United, Spurs, Aston Villa & more

The Magpies are closing in on a return to Europe ten years after their last venture into the Europa League.

Newcastle United supporters are dreaming of a return to European competition after the Magpies maintained their push for a Champions League place with two dominant performances over the last seven days.

Eddie Howe’s men went into last weekend’s home clash with fellow top four contenders Tottenham Hotspur looking to shake off the effects of the comprehensive 3-0 defeat they suffered at Aston Villa a week earlier. A stunning reaction was produced as the Magpies stormed to a 6-1 win over a beleagured Spurs before following that up with another impressive display in Thursday night’s 4-1 victory at relegation threatened Everton.

The results boosted United’s hopes of ending their two-decade absence from the Champions League and increased their chances of landing potential trips to the likes of Barcelona, Inter Milan and Feyenoord next season. But where are Eddie Howe’s side predicted to finish in the Premier League this season? NewcastleWorld utilised the services of stats experts FiveThirtyEight to find out.
