Newcastle United vs Burnley FC
Venue: St James’ Park
Newcastle take on Burnley at St James’ Park in a game in which events off the pitch could well overshadow those on it.
After a surging start, as each match day goes by it seems Newcastle are edging ever closer to oblivion.
West Ham United vs Newcastle United
Venue: London Stadium
West Ham welcome Newcastle to their first visit to the London Stadium in hope of exacting some revenge after their humiliation up at St James Park where they were thoroughly beaten 3-0. West Ham have turned the corner since that game after gaining 7 points in the last 3 game weeks with impressive wins against Chelsea and Stoke City and a draw against Arsenal. All this has pushed West Ham up the table and out of the relegation zone.
Chelsea vs Newcastle United
Date: Saturday 2nd December
Venue: Stamford Bridge
TV: Sky Sports Main Event
Chelsea host Newcastle United in the 12.30pm kick-off on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.
The 1-0 scoreline at St James’ Park reflects the type of game between Newcastle United and Crystal Palace perfectly, as it lacked energy, pace and talking points, however, it doesn’t however convey the fact it was actually Crystal Palace who looked most likely to win the game from the outset.
