Why Newcastle should bounce back vs Fulham

Ahead of the tie, a number of interesting statistics have come to light, which highlight why Newcastle should beat Fulham:

  • Newcastle are unbeaten in their past six Premier League meetings with Fulham, winning the last three in a row.
  • Since beating Everton 1-0 on the opening weekend, Fulham are winless in their past seven Premier League away games. They last had a longer winless run on the road in the same campaign in their first 17 games of the 2018-19 season.
  • No player has more Premier League assists this season than Newcastle’s Kieran Trippier (seven). It’s as many as he provided in the competition in the whole of last season, with Matt Ritchie the last Newcastle player to provide more in a single campaign (8 in 2018-19).
  • Newcastle have won 80.8% of their Premier League points in home games this season, with only Sheffield United (87.5%) winning a higher share on their own patch.
