Rafa Benitez has just given his press conference for the game against Preston North End tomorrow afternoon at Deepdale, when we will try to extend our winning streak in all competitions to seven.
We beat Preston 6-0 on Tuesday night to reach the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup. so it’s now going to be a big test for the lads to show their professionalism and go to Preston tomorrow and win again.
Preston will provide a much sterner test tomorrow.

Here are some of the initial comments Rafa made about the tough game tomorrow night:
“We have some players coming back from injury, and some players with little problems.”
“It will be different teams in a different competition, and it will be massively different for them, as they’re playing at home.”
“The key is that the staff and everyone here is pushing in the right direction.”
“It’s a long, long season, with a lot of games. Everything can change in one month.”
“At the moment, we have to enjoy the situation and keep trying to do the same things. We are working very hard.”
“Preston will change players, and they have done well against the top sides.”
“It will be tough.”
Almost eight fans in ten think we will win this game tomorrow afternoon and hold onto our 3 points lead at the top of the table.
That would be great!
