Steven Taylor, who has an excellent game against Chelsea last Monday afternoon, talked about Newcastle’s last game of the season at Everton on Sunday.
Steven Taylor – looking forward to Everton game
Taylor told the Evening Chronicle today:
â€œWe were disappointed not to finish our home campaign with a win and now we want to end the season on a high by beating Everton.”
â€œIt was a good team performance against Chelsea but we were disappointing in the second half.”
â€œWe didnâ€™t create much after the break and once Chelsea scored it knocked us a bit.” â€œNow all I am bothered about is Newcastle winning at Everton then Iâ€™ll be happy.â€
However, Everton know that defeat could see them miss out on 5th place and a UEFA Cup slot if Aston Villa also win at West Ham.
â€œThis is a massive game for us.” â€œWe are playing for contracts and also playing for our shirts next season.”
“So the importance of the game is there for all to see.”
â€œWe can look forward to sending the fans away happy if we win at Everton.â€
Taylor is pleased that United arenâ€™t involved in another game that means nothing, and we’re sure Keegan will stress that that Everton are a team Newcastle will need to overtake next season if we are to finish 5th in the league.
It’s a good time to test ourselves against our real competition next season. Steven continued:
â€œIâ€™m pleased that the game still means something. I can think of nothing worse than a dead-rubber game.”
â€œEverton will come at us very strong but itâ€™s up to us to deal with that.”
â€œIf we do what we did at the start against Chelsea we have a chance of getting something out of the game.”
â€œThe Blues made it hard for us and it was a good test but we ended up disappointed but we just have to deal with that and move on.”
â€œAs a unit we defended well, but we must look back at the game and see how we can improve.â€
It would be very nice to win at Everton, especially with all the circus stuff that has been going on in the press with Newcastle, since we were beaten last Monday by Chelsea.
