Number of times club have fielded an ‘Unchanged Line-Up’

The Daily Mail have today published an article, analysing the frequency of changes made to the starting line-up of each Premier League team.

The Magpies have only made 31 changes in their starting eleven since their first match against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in August.

It therefore comes as no surprise that Newcastle sit on the top of the table when it comes to naming the most number of unchanged line ups. They share that spot with Everton, Hull City and Crystal Palace.

With the injury problems the club is facing right now these figures could change in coming weeks.

These statistics are very telling; there are two very different reasons that could explain the consistency in team selection: it is either because Alan Pardew has been happy with how the first eleven have been performing. Or, he does not trust the other squad players at his disposal.

When it comes to the Fair Play standings, the club from the North-East stands 13th in the table with a score of 187.8 and with 749 points. Stoke City are bottom whereas Liverpool are top of that Particular table.
