Newcastle United season so far defined by these 10 sets of Premier League statistics

Below is a summary of the full article. Click here for the full version or go back to NUFC Live

I had a look at the official Premier League site which threw up these various stats: Newcastle United are 19th highest with 76, only Wolves with less Newcastle United are 19th highest with 21, only Sheff Utd with less Newcastle United are 19th highest with 108, only Norwich with less Newcastle United are 19th highest with 2,543, only Burnley with less Newcastle United are 18th highest with 32, only Villa and Brighton with less Newcastle United are 19th highest with 5, only Watford with less Newcastle United are top with 22 (Almiron 9 and Joelinton 4, are the main offenders) The Premier League official site doesn’t have possession stats but BBC Sport shows Newcastle United are 20th in the Premier League with an average of 32% possession.

Newcastle United are nine weeks and eight matches into their Premier League season.



Newcastle United are all but rock bottom on everything – shots, shots on target, crosses, corners and of course…goals.



We need far more than that because that kind of luck won’t carry us through the season.

I think the team have done well to edge out Tottenham and Manchester United in those two matches but the general play and tactics from Newcastle United this season, means that in any game NUFC need just about everything to fall right to get anything.

We will all have our own ideas about what our eyes tell us about this season so far but what do the statistics tell us to help make our mind up?

Sunday’s win was built on a clean sheet and David De Gea not saving the only decent shot on target.
