Newcastle United are offered a favourable chance of continuing their winning run this weekend.
Having reached 40 points – a remarkable achievement considering where the team were upon Eddie Howe’s appointment in November – attentions have now turned to trying to finish in the top-half of the table.
Home wins over Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City and Crystal Palace have propelled Newcastle even further up the table, meaning they head into Saturday’s trip to Norwich City in good spirits.
Dean Smith’s side are fighting for their lives towards the bottom of the table and impressed, albeit in a losing effort, at Manchester United last time out. Prior to that, Norwich conquered relegation rivals Burnley at Carrow Road, breathing life into what had looked like a hopeless fight against the drop.
