Rafa Benitez had just finished his press conference this afternoon for the vital game at home against Burnley tomorrow night – which has an 8:00pm kick-off time.
There are no new injuries, so only Elliot and Clark are not available for tomorrow’s night’s vital home game.
Rafa has said Burnley will be a different game than against Huddersfield, and he was asked about the impact of young Miguel Almiron – who had a terrific home debut on Saturday.
What’s not to like about this lad?
Rafa Benitez – at his press conference
Here’s some of what an upbeat Rafa has said in his press conference:
“Everybody apart from Clark and Elliot is available, it is a good problem to have.”
“We know they will be physical and tough. Burnley will be a different challenge for us.”
“Almiron did really well. Everything we were expecting, he did.’”
“He has no problem with physicality.” “In training, he plays with the same style and he’s not scared.”
“Hopefully he won’t have bad tackles anymore.”
“The fans were delighted with Almiron’s contribution and you could feel the crowd get excited.”
“Maybe I was the most nervous person in the ground on Saturday because I knew how important the first goal was.”
“But we did well and, in the end, the fans appreciated that”
Less than six in ten fans think we can win this game tomorrow night and no doubt it will be more difficult than the game against the Terriers.
