Newcastle United

Chelsea closer to Premier League title, but are Everton in a relegation scrap?

Manchester United grab another three points, while Aston Villa break their losing streak with a vital extra-time winner.
A full slate of midweek fixtures saw Tim Sherwood lead Villa to victory, an apologetic Ben Foster and a water bottle showdown between Gus Poyet and Steve Bruce.
The ESPN FC panel discuss why Chelsea have been able to maintain their lead atop the Premier League as they held on for a 1-nil victory over West Ham.

It's time to run the rule over the Heroes and Villains of matchday 28 in the Premier League, as there were plenty of exciting midweek fixtures.


Twice, Jonas Gutierrez has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. Twice, he has beaten it. To fight that battle with courage and dignity, whether that battle is won or lost, is an achievement that outstrips any of the trivialities this column covers from week to week. To fight it twice, to beat it twice and to return to one of the world's most demanding...

Newcastle fail again vs. Man United as the gap continues to grow

The ESPN FC crew break down Manchester United's last-gasp victory over Newcastle and admit sometimes it's better to be lucky than good in the Premier League.

Newcastle United's home games with Manchester United don't usually end well. OK, there are memories such as Kevin Keegan's team beating the Red Devils 5-0, Sir Bobby Robson's side edging a 4-3 win and even Alan Pardew overseeing a 3-0 win at St James' Park.

But that's all they are: memories. And pretty distant ones at this rate because in reality, Newcastle have won just five times out of the last 22 visits for Man United.

Young's late winner earns Manchester United three vital points

Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal says his side were well worth their late win against Newcastle on Wednesday.

NEWCASTLE, England -- Three thoughts on Manchester United's 1-0 win vs. Newcastle in the Premier League.

1. Young's decisive late strike

"Attack, attack, attack," implored visiting Manchester United fans as the game wore on. Their side had been ponderous and punchless against a determined Newcastle effort, supplying another antiseptic display, while their rivals for a top-four finish were all winning. Liverpool were set to draw level on points, with the Merseysiders in infinitely richer form than...

Visit from Manchester United gives Newcastle a reason to be motivated

Aston Villa sunk further into the relegation zone courtesy of a game-winning goal from Papiss Cisse.

When you support a football club which openly admits to having no cup and limited league ambitions, one of the few things fans have to look forward to are the opportunities to overturn the Premier Leagues 'big boys'. Newcastle will once again have the chance to do that when Manchester United head to Tyneside on Wednesday night.

Beating these sides becomes more and more difficult each year -- the longer Newcastle fail to invest in their playing squad and operate with so few playing options while...

Newcastle win as the tables are turned again on Aston Villa

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Papiss Cisse goal (37') Newcastle 1-0 Aston Villa

When Newcastle were relegated after defeat at Villa Park in May 2009, the home fans were delighted. They came with mocking banners and bedsheets and their supporters sang songs championing Newcastle owner Mike Ashley's mismanagement of the football club.

Newcastle's players, staff and fans have not forgotten and in turn, were delighted by the 1-0 win against Villa at St James' Park on Saturday afternoon.

Newcastle's pride at stake in clash with Aston Villa

On Saturday, versus Aston Villa, Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul will be hoping his day will not be as busy as it was last week at Manchester City.
On Saturday, versus Aston Villa, Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul will be hoping his day will not be as busy as it was last week at Manchester City.

There's no love lost between Newcastle United and Aston Villa.


When Newcastle were sent crashing into the Football League by virtue of their 1-0 loss at Villa Park six years ago, it inflicted plenty of wounds on Geordie fans. It was bad enough seeing an expensively assembled team mismanaged by former manager Joe Kinnear, who laid the foundations for the drop before Chris Hughton (March to April) and Alan Shearer (April till late May) followed him in management, but by then it was too...
