It’s weird that after our great home win on Saturday against Huddersfield we have 28 points and that’s the exact same number of points we had last season after 27 games.
Last season we had just beaten Manchester United at home 1-0 when Martin Dubravka was making his debut for Newcastle and had a great game.
Newcastle seem to be coming into form at the same time as last year and we only have Arsenal away and Liverpool at home of the top six teams still to face.
There’s even a decent chance if we can put a good string of wins together that we can beat the 44 points we gained last season.
Rafa Benitez congratulates captain Jamaal Lascelles after Saturday’s vital win
We’re sure that’s one target Rafa is aiming for – but as he says – we’ll take one game at a time and go all out to win it.
Next up are Burnley tomorrow night at home.
In our 28th game last season we drew 2-2 at Bournemouth.
We have won the same number of games, lost the same and drawn the same as last year at this time.
