Worth mentioning: Since Newcastle’s win over Manchester City with 2:1, no team has been able to score more than a goal in the three games with the Magpies. That leads directly to only one of Newcastle’s last five game to feature over 2,5 goals, while in three of them both teams managed to score. The Magpies did not record a clean sheet during that period. The team lost only one of the last five home games, while able to keep a clean sheet in the victory over Cardiff.
Huddersfield are without a win in the team’s last fourteen outings. If they manage to avoid the relegation, it would be one of the surprises of the century and could be compared only to Leicester title winning campaign. Huddersfield did not score in the last four visits away from home.
