Newcastle lead Premier League injury report

Premier League injuries: Newcastle lose five years, Leicester stay clear

Leicester had only 12 injuries all season long.

Leicester City's remarkable on field success this season has been almost matched by their performance off it. No team has lost less time to injury than the Foxes, whose meagre sum of only 313 days pales into insignificance when you consider Newcastle lost close to five-and-a-half years more during the same period.

No stranger to the upper echelons of the injury table, Newcastle won't be pleased to be crowned "Injury Champions" for the second successive season and, of greater concern, is their record...

Newcastle's disastrous season due in large part to faith in Steve McClaren

Rafa Benitez almost brought Newcastle back from the brink, now the question is whether or not he'll stay with the club.

With the season over, it's time to assess Newcastle's 2015-16. Here's a look back at a troubled campaign.

Will Newcastle get promoted next season?

Season in a sentence

It's been a season that has always seemed on the brink of collapse from the first few games and it unfolded into an inevitable conclusion -- relegation.


It's difficult to pull one out after a season of relegation, but Rafa Benitez's arrival at least brightened things up for a while on Tyneside despite the club making an almighty tumble into the Championship. His...

Premier League season in a sentence as Leicester crowned champions

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol reflects on the Premier League season.

It was another memorable Premier League campaign. Our ESPN FC bloggers take a quick look at how their team fared in the 2015-16 season.

LEICESTER: Leicester ended 2015-16 with a fairytale Premier League title, the PFA player of the year, a Premier League scoring record and Champions League football -- so not bad, then! -- Ben Jacobs

ARSENAL: Not good enough to sustain a title challenge but not bad enough to drop out of the top four -- stop me if you think you've heard this one before. --

Georginio Wijnaldum leads way in Newcastle's rout of Tottenham

Rafael Benitez should enjoy the result against Tottenham, amidst questions about his future with the club.

Only Newcastle United could serve up a five-star display against a Champions League-bound Tottenham side before bowing out of the Premier League.

And as the goals rolled in to crush Spurs' dream of finishing ahead of Arsenal for the first time in the Premier League, it was difficult to think that this will be the last top-flight game on Tyneside until at least August 2017.

Nevertheless, the fans that turned out got right behind their side, and despite being relegated for the second time in...

Rafa Benitez a beacon of hope for Newcastle supporters

Rafael Benitez should enjoy the result against Tottenham, amidst questions about his future with the club.
Despite being relegated earlier in the week, Newcastle finished their season on a high, thumping Spurs at St. James' Park.

NEWCASTLE, England -- "Five-one to the Championship," the Newcastle fans sang. In bidding farewell to Premier League football and sinking Tottenham's hopes of finishing above Arsenal for the first time in 21 years, their team signed off in style. As manager Rafa Benitez and his players received a post-match standing ovation from all corners of the ground, it was briefly possible to suspend the reality of relegation.

Those expecting scenes of insurrection at St James' Park were disappointed....

Newcastle's dismal season comes to merciful close

The ESPN FC crew react to Newcastle's relegation from the Premier League.

Newcastle's sorry season comes to a sad but inevitable end this weekend with Tottenham Hotspur bringing the curtain down on Premier League football for at least 12 months.

How have Newcastle managed to get into this position?

Well, they only have themselves to blame in many ways, even though they did cough up £80million in transfers. And if ever there was a season that proved money does not buy success, it's been the awful 2015-16 campaign, an adventure that started with so much hope but...
