Almost a month has passed since the 2018/19 Premier League season came to a close and Newcastle fans are still waiting for some positive news from the club.
Nothing has been confirmed regarding the proposed takeover by the Bin Zayed Group and Rafa Benitez is yet to sign a new deal, with his current contract ending on 30 June. Everything is hanging in the balance and fans are becoming frustrated, however that could all change should Benitez commit his future to the Magpies and Mike Ashley agrees to sell.
One thing that's certain is the fixture list for Newcastle's 2019/20 campaign and it starts off with a monster clash against Arsenal at home on Sunday 11 August. A visit to the new White Hart Lane comes at the end of the month before another away trip, this time to Anfield, which kicks off their Premier League fixtures in September.
October plays host to three big tests in the form of Manchester United, Chelsea and Wolves before the festive period brings with it the chance to gain plenty of points. Newcastle only face two top six sides in ten matches throughout December and January.
Stand out fixtures then come in the shape of Arsenal in February, Manchester City in April and two of the top teams visit Tyenside in the final three games of the season - Tottenham on 2 May, then Liverpool in the final game of the campaign.
