Premier League side Newcastle United are already facing relegation threats this early in the season. With Aton Villa getting a draw, the Magpies dropped to the 18th spot on the log. Despite hosting struggling Brighton & Hove Albion next, going away to Leicester City and then facing Manchester United and Chelsea, there are no sure hopes of picking any point in the next four games.
Under former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez, Newcastle finished in the 10th and 13th position at the end of the season. It seems those mid-table finishes made the fans and management forget that they were nowhere there, and required substantial urgent investment like the Spaniard asked for.
