Newcastle United won’t suffer demotion to the English Championship at the end of this season, according to footballer turned pundit Stephen Warnock. According to him, Newcastle United won’t suffer relegation at the end of the Premier League this season as the Magpies don’t look like a team that won’t beat the drop in the English top flight this season. Stephen Warnock talked about the Magpies and the relegation zone while he was doing his punditry job with the BBC last weekend. Stephen Warnock was on duty as Manchester United beat Newcastle United 3-1 last weekend. For the former Liverpool and Blackburn Rovers defender, Newcastle United gave a good account of themselves during the Manchester United game and that theyhave too much quality to drop down to the second tier of club football in England, the English Championship.
The defeat to Manchester United ensured that Newcastle United are now three points away from the relegation zone. Fulham are the closest team to Newcastle United on the league standings and the Cottagers have been picking up wins in the past few games in the Premier League to put pressure on the Magpies. Newcastle United are fourth from bottom on the table, while Fulham are third from bottom on the table with three teams set to suffer demotion to the English Championship. Fulham had won two of their last three league games before this weekend, while the Manchester United game ensured that Newcastle United have two wins in 14 league matches before this weekend. At the end of this weekend’s set of games, the two teams maintained their position by recording the same result. Newcastle United were forced to a 1-1 draw at home to Wolves, while Fulham played out a goalless draw at the home of Crystal Palace.
