Newcastle United: Magpies rank among lowest in 2020/21 Premier League in six key areas so far

Newcastle United: Magpies rank among lowest in 2020/21 Premier League in six key areas so far - Newcastle United News

Newcastle United rank among the lowest in the 2020/21 Premier League for six key areas so far, according to Ross Gregory.

As per his tweet, the Tyneside club rank 19th for shots per game (9), 20th for shots on target per match (1), 17th in terms of possession of the ball a game (43.1%), 18th in terms of dribbles a match (5.7), 15th for pass completion success rate (77.3%) and 19th in terms of shots conceded per game (17).

Despite these rather disappointing statistics, Steve Bruce’s team have accumulated four points out of a possible nine, leaving them in a respectable 10th place in the current top-flight table.

However, it is still very early doors in terms of the season and the Magpies may not be so lucky to gain as many points with the kind of figures that they are producing at the moment.

Where will Newcastle finish in the Premier League?

With the new attacking signings of Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser and Jeff Hendrick joining the current side for the 2020/21 campaign, perhaps the Toon faithful should be expecting better stats in key attacking areas. Instead, despite currently being in 10th position in the table, they have ranked far lower for several important metrics so far.

Who was the last club Rafa managed before Newcastle?

Newcastle’s next game is away at League Two club Newport County in the Carabao Cup fourth round before their next Premier League match at home to Sean Dyche’s Burnley on Saturday, where Bruce will surely be hoping to put on a better attacking performance than the stats have seemed to suggest so far.
