Eddie Howe Newcastle

Coming off the back of Tuesday nights 1-1 draw with fellow relegation strugglers Norwich, Newcastle have been tipped to end 2021 without a league victory.

Eddie Howe’s side currently find themselves six points adrift of safety and Paddy Power have tipped them at 5/2 to see out the rest of 2021 without winning.

Next up for Newcastle is a huge game against Burnley before they face the likes of Leicester, Liverpool, Man City Man United and Everton before the turn of the year.

 

If Eddie Howe isn’t able to find the winning formula at Newcastle, the bookies have him as short as 3/1 to be sacked before next season’s campaign ends, or a slightly lengthier 16/1 before this term is up.

Spokesperson Paddy Power said: “The financial situation at Newcastle might have improved, but their league position certainly hasn’t. Whatever happens, we hope they haven’t got rid of one mug in the boardroom, just to install another as head coach.”

“If the owners do give Howe the boot, Daniel Levy’s prodigal son Mauricio Pochettino might be next up. But, punters shouldn’t overlook tactical genius Ole Gunnar Solskjær who is 33/1 to take the reigns at St James’ Park. Ole’s at the wheel does have a pretty nice ring to it, after all!”.
