Just like we did last year we are starting to win games in February, and hopefully, we can get a few good wins in our final 10 games of the season.
After 28 games last season we had 29 points after having drawn at Bournemouth 2-2 after being two goals ahead at half time and conceding two goals in the final 10 minutes of that game.
Hopefully, we are a lot more solid in defense this season with Fabian Schar having come into the back line.
Rafa Benitez congratulates Fabian Scar
On that fantastic goal of his on Tuesday night
Rafa seems to be expecting a strong finish to the season from this Newcastle side as he said this in the Chronicle today:
“I know my staff and from a long, long time ago we have always finished stronger at the end of the season.”
“Sometimes you can lose some games, but we finish stronger and I had confidence that we could do it.”
“If you remember last year, we were safe with five games to play and after, we lost four games and we won the last one, but we were already safe.”
“It was something that I was expecting and hopefully we can carry on winning games.”
“And if we are safe soon, we can manage games in another way and try to be even better if we can.”
About half of our fans think we can win this game and make it three wins on the trot.
That would be something since West Ham have a very decent side.
