Every team relegated from the Premier League after winning three in a row – Newcastle United looking to avoid the fate of Crystal Palace, West Ham, Middlesbrough and more

Newcastle United have eased some relegation worries with three straight wins in the Premier League.

Eddie Howe’s side have beaten, Leeds United 1-0, Everton 3-1 and Aston Villa 1-0 in their last three matches in the top flight and have moved up to 17th, four points clear of the relegation zone, in the process.

It is the first time United have won three consecutive league matches since November 2018, when they were managed by Rafa Benitez.

Winning three consecutive matches is tough in the Premier League, particularly when you’re at the wrong end of the table.

In fact, Newcastle are the only team outside of the top eight to have gone on such a run so far this season.

While that certainly bodes well in their fight to avoid relegation, there have been several cases of teams going on winning streaks of three games or more and still suffering relegation.
