After facing Chelsea in the FA cup, Rafa Benitez turns his attention back to the Premier league and what could be a very important period regarding survival in the top flight. United face crucial games against the likes of Burnley, Palace and Bournemouth in the space of a month.
After facing a trip to Stamford Bridge in the fourth round of the FA cup Rafa's men return to Premier League action on Wednesday night when Burnley travel to St James' for a 7:45 kick off. The Clarets, who were in dreamland at the start of the season have dipped in form recently failing to win against Palace or Huddersfield and only picking one point from their last four games. After facing us in midweek Burnley look to a tough game against league leaders Manchester City in the early kick off at Turf Moor.
After Burnley we face a trip to Selhurst to face a Palace team that hasn't won in their last two games. Before playing us though, the eagles have a clash at the London Stadium in a game that could also affect Newcastle's situation. Following a break and a game with Manchester United at home we travel to the south coast in a game which, if results in previous fixtures havn't gone our way could be possibly one of the biggest games of the season.
