Rafa Benitez has finished his press conference today and dare we say it – he’s as confident as ever – and thinks that in these four home games remaining, our fans can make a massive difference and we have to get as many wins as possible at home.
But the defense seems awfully inexperienced and it’s likely to be Darlow Anita Mbemba Lascelles and Dummett – with Coloccini, Janmaat and Mbabu all out injured.
Who can can play at right back apart from Anita is a good question – maybe Paul moves to right back and jack Colback comes in at left back?
Rafa Benitez at press conference today
This is some of what Rafa has said and it
“It’s really important for us to have these four home games. Our fans can make the difference.”
“I don’t see any fear in the players. I just know they’re upset and disappointed. But they’ll fight until the end – give everything”
“The only thing I am asking the players is to give everything and the fans have to know they will give their all”
“The Norwich vs Sunderland result, we can’t impact on. I am confident we can get the points to stay up. Fans can make the difference”
“We have to have confidence. It’s massive for us, crucial for us. We have to start winning games.”
We must twin this game tomorrow but without some experienced defenders in the side – it’s going to be very difficult.
