Newcastle United's shock new predicted finish as top four hopes compared to Aston Villa and Spurs - gallery

Where are Newcastle United predicted to finish in this season's Premier League?

Newcastle United may well be battling with a lengthy injury list but that has not stopped the Magpies competing for a second successive top four finish in this season's Premier League table.

Eddie Howe has been without several key players over the last two months and has been forced into some difficult decisions as his side competes in the league, Champions League and Carabao Cup. With a hectic December schedule lying in wait, the Magpies boss will hope there is some light at the end of the tunnel as he looks to guide the club to success on a number of fronts.

But where are the Magpies predicted to finish in the Premier League table? After simulating 10,000 different versions of the current Premier League season ahead of the weekend fixtures, BetVictor's supercomputer has averaged the total points accumulated by each club and produced a new predicted final table - and it looks like it could be good news for Howe and his players.
