Geordies extend unbeaten run

10/3 that they'll taste defeat for the first time when they go to Old Trafford

Newcastle United’s unbeaten start to the new Premier League season has now been extended to 11 games following a 2-1 win over Everton on Saturday.

Alan Pardew’s men have 25 points and currently occupy third place in the Premier League table. Seven wins and four draws have left the Geordies one point behind Manchester United and three ahead of Chelsea as the first trimester of the season draws to a close.

However, a run of testing fixtures now lies in wait for The Magpies who play Manchester City (A), Manchester United (A) and Chelsea (H) in their next three games. Pardew, though, believes his players are in the correct mindset to continue their good run of form.

“Whatever I put in front of them, they think they are going to win. That inner belief is very, very important, and it is a belief in the group that we will take to Manchester City,” said the Newcastle boss.

The win over Everton on Saturday meant that they equalled the club’s record start to a season. Back in 1950/51 and more recently in 1994/95 the Toon Army had gone 11 games unbeaten at the start of the campaign.

“It was important for us because you want to have that on your CV,” added Pardew.

“That was something we had our eye on, and also to go to Manchester City unbeaten because you need confidence like that if you are going to take a team on of their power.

“After Barcelona, Manchester United and Manchester City might be second or third in that group of the best in Europe. We are going to the best in Europe in the next two games and we couldn't be better-placed to do it.”

William Hill have opened a football specials betting market on how many points Newcastle will take from their next three games. One point is the 7/4 favourite, two, three or four points is priced at 2/1, no return at all is 9/4 and 5 or more points priced at 7/1.

Hills also offer odds of 1/3 that they will lose their unbeaten record when they travel to the Etihad Stadium in a fortnight’s time, 10/3 that they’ll taste defeat for the first time when they go to Old Trafford the following week and 14/1 that Chelsea become the first side to beat them. It is also 14/1 that they come out of the three games with their unbeaten record still intact.
