Newcastle United have secured a place in the next season's UEFA Champions League football after a goalless draw against Leicester City at home on Monday (May 22). A point led them to 70 points from 37 matches, four points clear of 19 times champions Liverpool, with the Reds having just one game in hand.
The Magpies are enjoying a stellar season in English Premier League with 19 wins, 13 draws, and only five defeats so far. Only table-toppers and the reigning champions Manchester City have recorded fewer defeats than Newcastle in 2022-23.
Newcastle finished the last season in 11th place after Eddie Howe took charge in November 2021. The Englishman guided Newcastle from 19th place to 11th position and now brings the Champions League back at St James' Park for the first time since 2003.
