The last time Newcastle won the in the Premier League was when Mikel Merino got that 86th minute goal to give us a hard-earned 1-0 win at home to Crystal Palace.
Since then we have played six games and have lost five and drew at West Brom, so we need to improve as soon as possible.
We have Leicester City on Saturday at St. James’ Park and with a sell out crowd supporting the lads that could inspire them to our first win in seven weeks.
Mikel Merino – scoring the winner in our last win against Crystal Palace
We need the win to ease the tension about relegation and even about the stalled takeover; we are hoping captain Jamaal Lascelles will be fit.
We have missed Jamaal with his good play and strong leadership on the field.
A win is just what the doctor ordered.
