Most of our International players should be back in Newcastle by now so Rafa can work with them and prepare for the 4pm kickoff game on Sunday afternoon which will be televised live around the world.
Newcastle were beaten 1-0 at Brighton and drew 1-1 at home to Liverpool in our last two games after our 3 wins in a row, so hopefully, we can start another winning run on Sunday.
Here are the next four games we have to play before the next International break – all are winnable.
