PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Newcastle United are 'bang in trouble' and it will be a 'miracle' if they avoid relegation from the Premier League this term. That is the damning verdict of TalkSPORT and ITV commentator Sam Matterface, who insists it was 'pure and utter luck' the Magpies avoided relegation last season. Despite finishing 13th in the Premier League last term, as well as reaching the FA Cup quarter-finals, their expected goals ratio ranked as one of the worst in the division. That has carried on into this season and despite picking up positive results in the first half of the campaign, Newcastle fans continued to warn onlookers that their side were defying the statistics under Steve Bruce's management. United remain near the bottom of almost every performance metric in the Premier League and now results are beginning to match the trends.

"The main takeaway for me is that Newcastle are bang in trouble," Matterface told TalkSPORT's GameDay podcast. "They are going one way and Fulham are going the other way.

"To learn a new style of play, a new style of coaching. "They did quite well to get back into the game but I just didn't have any confidence that they were going to see it through. "I just have every anticipation that they are going to be relegated and I have felt it since the beginning of the season.
