Newcastle v Fulham | Stats Analysis

It started off as a nervy 30 minutes at St James' Park, as we struggled to maintain possession after a good start from Fulham. A good end to the half put us in good stead for the second half, as a double from Leon Best was enough to fend off a late comeback from Fulham, after a Clint Dempsey header caught Tim Krul off his line to give the Cottagers a faint glimmer of hope.

It’s the fixture that all Newcastle and Sunderland fans look for as soon as the fixtures are announced and it’s the one fixture that the fans are excited about, yet fear and dread of the thought of losing to the enemy. Last season, we drew 1-1 at the Stadium of Light, with Gyan scoring a late equaliser to cancel out Kevin Nolan’s opening goal.  Back in October, Sunderland endured a Halloween nightmare at St James’ Park – suffering a 5-1 …
