Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez has just given his press conference for the game on Monday night at Burnley.
That game will be another close one with Burnley doing very well this season and only one point and one place behind Newcastle in the league table.
The games against the bottom 14 teams are games we can definitely win – home or away – so Rafa will be looking for Newcastle’s second win in succession after beating Crystal Palace 1-0 at home last Saturday afternoon.

This is some of what Rafa has said today:
“I said before we aren’t talking about that (the takeover) – just concentrating on the games.”
“We have to wait and see where we are in January – we have to wait a bit before we’re too happy.”
“By January we will have played all of the top teams.”
“Sean Dyche is doing a great job. He has the experience to know what’s going on.”
“I think he can have success at another club if he goes.”
“His goatee is better than mine but he can win that – I want to win on Monday!”
“We still have Dummett out and all the other players are available.Gayle and Haidara are fine.”
That’s very good news on the injury front – one person injured – a lot different compared to past years.
Here’s where we are in the league table before the weekend games.
And most fans expect us to pick up something on Monday night.
Howay The Lads!!
