While their performances have underwhelmed for much of the season, it's the first time this season that the bottom three has truly loomed large, and fans are worried about what the final weeks of the season have in store. That includes Shearer, who hinted at his fear for his former team. After Ademola Lookman put Fulham against the Blades, Gary Lineker tweeted out: "That Lookman goal could be huge for @FulhamFC." Shearer retweeted Lineker's tweet with double-eye emoji, as if to suggest that is very closely watching how Fulham fare. Prior to Fulham's win over United, Bruce said that he will see where the two teams end up at the end of the season, adding that there are still plenty of points to play for during the remainder of the campaign.

There have been calls for Bruce to be sacked. Chronicle Live understands that Mike Ashley is willing to be patient with Bruce. As Newcastle have not been seriously threatened by the relegation zone this season, there is a degree of goodwill.
