What Mark Lawrenson has been discussing about Newcastle United.

Mark Lawrenson has been discussing Newcastle United.

The Liverpool supporter discusses what is going on/has gone on with Eddie Howe and his players.

Mark Lawrenson previews the NUFC visit to Bramall Lane.

However, the player-turned-pundit Mark Lawrenson got a touch confused while speaking to Paddy Power ahead of Newcastle United’s match against Sheffield United on Sunday afternoon:

“Beating Bournemouth last week was a huge result for Newcastle, putting an end to their poor form.”

“It was also a good result in Milan on Tuesday, so they’re back on track, and I think they’ll win away.”

“Sheffield United 0 vs. Newcastle United 2”

Who says these ex-players don’t do their homework before offering their ‘expert’ judgment…

What difference does it make between Brentford and Bournemouth?

Anyway, yes, it was a big relief to see Newcastle United get back on track last weekend, with a hard fought but deserved win over BRENTFORD!

Then an extra massive lift to get that superb Champions League point away in the San Siro against a team who got to the CL semi-finals last season.

Yes AC Milan had a lot of shots BUT the vast majority were from distance and way off target. Whilst as for the ones on target, Nick Pope played very well and dealt with everything that came his way, however, none of the saves he needed to make were that testing.

The keeper and back four looking a lot better and no coincidence that two clean sheets in a row have come about with Sven Botman returning to the team.

Another clean sheet on Sunday would surely see Newcastle United picking up another Premier League victory, as Sheffield United haven’t kept a clean sheet so far and in their last four PL matches have conceded twice each time.

So I can agree at least with the Mark Lawrenson prediction, as I think a 2-0 away win is very much on the cards if Newcastle play anything like they are capable of and have their shooting boots on.

As the upcoming match schedule below shows, this run of Premier League games that we have up to the end of October, give Eddie Howe and his players, at least on paper, a great chance of putting a run of positive results together.
