When discussing the present Newcastle United predicament, Mark Lawrenson becomes slightly perplexed.

Mark Lawrenson has been discussing Newcastle United.

However, the player turned commentator became perplexed in the process…

Mark Lawrenson spoke to Paddy Power ahead of Newcastle United’s match against Sheffield United on Sunday:

“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, it was a huge relief to see Newcastle United get back on track last Saturday, with a hard-fought but well-earned victory over BRENTFORD!

Then a huge boost to take that wonderful Champions League point away in the San Siro against a team that reached the CL semi-finals last season.

Yes, AC Milan had a lot of shots, but the vast majority of them were long and wide. While Nick Pope performed extremely well and handled with everything that came his way, none of the stops he needed to make were particularly difficult.

The goalkeeper and back four are looking much better, and it’s no accident that Sven Botman’s return to the club has resulted in two clean sheets in a row.

Another clean sheet on Sunday would almost certainly lead to another Premier League victory for Newcastle United, since Sheffield United have yet to keep a clean sheet and have conceded twice in their previous four PL games.

So I can at least agree with Mark Lawrenson’s forecast, since I believe a 2-0 away win is highly likely if Newcastle plays like they are capable of and puts 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.
