Cult hero Neil Warnock believes that Newcastle United will finish in the Premier League top four this season.
With England out of the Qatar World Cup, and the Premier League nearing its return, focus is beginning to shift back to the Premier League. Newcastle were excellent last season under Eddie Howe, and so far, have been very impressive in this campaign too. So much so that former Premier League manager, Neil Warnock, believes the Magpies will secure a top-four finish.

When quizzed on what teams he believes will make the top four, Warnock stated: “I think I’d put Newcastle in, me.”
However, he wasn’t so optimistic about Manchester United’s chances, saying: “I don’t think Man United will come fourth, but I do think he’s [Ten Hag] getting the job done. I thought it would take two or three years. You know that [Cristiano] Ronaldo has gone, I think he’s the same with the French with [Didier] Deschamps.
“He doesn’t want [Karim] Benzema back. I think the dressing room is right and he doesn’t want to jeopardise that now.”
With over half the season still left to play, predicting the final top-four is almost impossible at this stage and there will almost certainly be plenty of surprises over the coming months.
