Rafa Benitez is adamant that Newcastle cannot make any more mistakes like we did at Liverpool on Saturday, when we had to come back from two goals down at half time to get what was a well deserved point in the end.
Both goals were sloppy goals scored from outside the penalty area, when both Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana were given too much time to slam the ball into the Newcastle net.
Two excellent individual efforts no doubt, but slack marking from the Newcastle side.

It looks like if we can win all three remaining games we could be safe, after what´s been yet another disastrous season for the club.
This is what Rafa Benitez has said is necessary for the club to stay up:
“Every game for us now is a final,” “We know we cannot make mistakes.”
“We will play at home against Crystal Palace, and hopefully the fans will help. Aston Villa will also be really important.”
“Hopefully, we can fight to the end against Tottenham and stay up.”
“I think the players now have belief.” “The last three games we saw a lot of character.”
“The reaction of the team after we lost against Southampton has been fantastic.”
“Everyone thinks we can do it. It depends on other things too, but we are trying to do our best.”
If we do win the three games we are also assuming that both Sunderland and Norwich will drop some points.
It´s a decent chance for Newcastle to survive this season – especially after where we were after the Southampton defeat – and we should take it.
Howay The Lads!!
