Newcastle have the longest unbeaten run in Europe's top divisions right now

Newcastle United‘s draw with Arsenal on Tuesday night stretched the Magpies’ unbeaten Premier League run to 13 games.

Eddie Howe’s formidable side are enjoying a remarkable season, and have only tasted defeat once so far. That was the controversial 2-1 loss to Liverpool at Anfield.

That ended Newcastle’s brief unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign, falling in their fourth game. However, they have since gone on a run that is much longer.

The Liverpool game was the last time Newcastle lost. They have since played 13 league games, winning eight and drawing five.

It is a run that includes wins over Tottenham and Chelsea, while the Magpies have also held the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United to draws away from home. The point from the trip to the Emirates was particularly impressive, as Newcastle became the first team to stop Arsenal scoring this season.

13 without defeat is a remarkable achievement, and one that makes Newcastle standout among Europe’s elite.

Newcastle unbeaten run is the best in Europe right now

Across Europe’s top five leagues, there is currently no team with a longer unbeaten run than Newcastle.

That is according to Sqwuaka, who state that Howe’s side are now have the longest run after Napoli were beaten by Inter Milan in Serie A.

The Italian league leaders were on a run of 15 league Serie A games without defeat, as they look to win their first title since 1990.

But a 1-0 loss to Inter on Wednesday night has ended their run, with former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko scoring the only goal of the game.

It now means that Newcastle have the best active run in Europe right now. It isn’t as long as Napoli’s run, but they do have the chance to extend it in the coming weeks.

The Premier League takes a backseat over the next few days for Newcastle. On Saturday the FA Cup journey begins away to Sheffield Wednesday, then it is a mouthwatering midweek clash with Leicester, as both sides battle for a place in the final four of the Carabao Cup.

It is proving to be a magical season for Newcastle, who are showing no signs of being hindered by the World Cup break. Howe’s side are incredibly resilient, and that is a big reason why they are currently 13 games without defeat in the Premier League.

The draw with Arsenal kept the run going, and means Newcastle have the best active unbeaten run in Europe’s top five leagues right now.
