The 2-0 win yesterday against Huddersfield was the 3rd win in our last five league games with successive home wins against Cardiff, Man City, and Huddersfield.
We also had a 1-1 draw at Wolves and a 1-0 defeat at Wembley against Tottenham.
So that’s 10 points from the last five games, and we were unlucky at both Wolves and Tottenham in the games we didn’t win.
Rafa Benitez – applauding fans after the win yesterday
This is what Rafa Benitez said at his press conference after the 2-0 win against Huddersfield yesterday:
“Everybody was expecting that we could win, but maybe they were not expecting that we could play well like today and create so many chances.”
“But the main thing was to get three points – we did it and now it’s just carry on. Always I say the next game is the most important – it’s like a final for us.”
“Burnley are doing quite well, so we have to play with the same intensity as today and try to get three points in the next one and carry on.”
Here are the next five games coming up and Rafa will be trying to win every single one of them.
Tue 26 Feb Newcastle vs Burnley 8:00pm Sat 02 Mar West Ham vs Newcastle 5:30pm Sat 09 Mar Newcastle vs Everton 3:00pm Sat 16 Mar Bournemouth vs Newcastle 3:00pm Mon 01 Apr Arsenal vs Newcastle 8:00pm
If we can get 10 points from those games, we will be doing very well.
