Premier League photos and new predicted table finishes as Newcastle United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur compared
Where will the Magpies end their first full season under Eddie Howe?
It has been a mixed start to the Premier League season for Newcastle United but the international break does allow us to look at what has happened during the opening seven weeks of the campaign.
Eddie Howe’s side got their season off to an impressive start as Callum Wilson and Fabian Schar netted in a dominant display against Nottingham Forest - but that win over the Premier League newcomers remains the only maximum of the season so far.
Curiously, the Magpies have only lost one of their opening seven league fixtures and that came when a brave performance went without reward in controversial circumstances at Liverpool.
But it has been a story of what might have been for United after they could only collect draws in their other five fixtures.
There have been positives during that quintet of games, with the helter-skelter 3-3 draw with Manchester City arguably providing the highlight of the season so far.
A Nick Pope-inspired stalemate at Brighton earned the first away point of the season - but the draws against Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and Wolverhampton Wanderers really should have earned a more lucrative reward.
As it stands, the Magpies sit in mid-table as thoughts turn towards the international break - but where are Howe’s men predicted to finish in the Premier League this season?
