A former English Premier League footballer believes the Magpies will be fighting in the relegation zone at the end of the season.

Newcastle United lost two points in their match against Wolverhampton Wanderers tonight.

Isaac Hayden scored for the Magpies in the 56th minute, and just when Newcastle thought the would pick three points, Willy Boly scored in the last play of the match.

This leaves the team in the 16th position of the English Premier League table with 25 points.

Newcastle has only won six times, drawing seven and losing 13 matches.

They are currently just eight points away from the bottom two clubs in the standings.

And former EPL footballer Jamie Carragher spoke how the team is not in dangerous waters.

“The position they’re in: they’ve got exactly the same number of points in the last two Premier League seasons,” Carragher was quoted by The Chronicle Live.

“One season they’ve gone up to tenth, a couple of seasons before they got relegated which shows it can go either way.”

“What they will believe is that they’ve got a few tough fixtures out of the way – and one of them they won,” he added.

“I always believe that Rafa Benitez will produce results against the odds because of the quality of manager he is.”

“I don’t believe they’ll go down but if you’re asking me do I think Burnley or Palace will go down? No. So it comes down to Brighton, Southampton, Cardiff and Newcastle for one place. Fulham and Huddersfield I think are already gone,” he explained.

“I think Newcastle is in trouble. You can’t drop points against the teams that are struggling around you. which they have done, and not be,” Patrick Kluivert also added.

“They need to get the points as quickly as possible. It’s easier said than done but they need to fight as much as they can to get those points. It’s all about the confidence of the players.”
