Ex-Newcastle United striker Craig Bellamy is certain that the Magpies have the quality to avoid relegation from the Premier League at the end of the current season. Craig Bellamy told TalkSports that he's confident that Newcastle United would stay up for another season in the top flight. The Welshman won't want his former club to suffer demotion to the English Championship. According to him, the mentality of the Newcastle United and the negative tactics means that the Magpies are unable to beat the teams around them on the league table. Newcastle United have endured a wretched run of results in the top flight of English football over the last two to three months and that has seen them drop so close to the relegation zone. A run of just two wins from the last dozen games has left Newcastle United three points above the final relegation place occupied by Fulham but Craig Bellamy is adamant that the Magpies won't be demoted to the second level of club football in England.

Fulham are one of the form teams in the Premier League over the last three games and they are gradually closing the spaces above them on the league table. At a point last week, Fulham were ten points adrift of the last safety place occupied by Newcastle United but an impressive win over Everton reduced that arrears to seven points, while Newcastle United suffered a 2-0 loss at Chelsea with goals from Substitute Olivier Giroud and Timo Werner. Fulham had an extra game over Burnley and it was played some days later, the Cottagers got one point via a 1-1 draw away from home and could have gotten more. The point reduced the arrears to six points. Fulham were then able to reduce it to three points with the win at home to bottom club Sheffield United. A 1-0 win was more than enough for the Cottagers to move within three points of Newcastle United, who were on the end of a 3-1 defeat at Manchester United. Newcastle United would be hoping to bounce back from the recent defeats at Chelsea and Manchester United when they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Fulham and Crystal Palace will meet in a London Derby. The two Premier League games take place this weekend. Brighton and Hove Albion (four points above Fulham) and Burnley (six points above Fulham) are also not safe from relegation for now.
