vs Crystal Palace (H), Apr 30

Newcastle’s clash at home to Crystal Palace is huge in their bid to stay in the Premier League, but takes on further significance by the fact that the Eagles are managed by former Toon Army boss Alan Pardew, who says he is “desperate” for United to stay up.

Following on from two impressive results and performances, the hosts should have too much here.

Shoot Says: 2-0 win

vs Aston Villa (A), May 7

Next up for Rafa Benitez’s side is a fixture that looks to be a guaranteed three points, with Aston Villa losing their last 10 matches in the Premier League.

Already-relegated Villa are unlikely to put up much of a fight with Newcastle giving themselves a great chance of survival heading into the last day.

Shoot Says: 2-1 win

vs Tottenham (H), May 15

It certainly could have been easier for the Tyneside outfit on the final day, as they host a Tottenham team that have been so impressive over the course of the campaign.

While the title will be out of reach by this stage, Spurs will still be determined to finish above Arsenal for the first time in Premier League history, and a defeat at St James’ Park could be enough to send Newcastle down to the Championship on goal difference.

Shoot Says: 2-1 loss
League Position: 18th
Overall Points: 36
