After the 2-2 draw yesterday at Bournemouth we now have over a two-week International break before we play at Arsenal two weeks tomorrow night.
We have 7 games left – three at home and four away and we should be able to pick up some additional wins before the end of the season.
Rafa Benitez – will want more than 9 points in final seven games

That’s really weird and a little amazing.
In the previous two games last season at this time (games 30 and 31) we beat Southampton (3-0) and Huddersfield (1-0) at home.
That was the start of a four-game winning streak which was followed by a four-game losing streak before we hammered Chelsea at home on Sunday 13 May to finish the season on 44 points in 10th place.
Hopefully, we can do better this season and get more than 9 points (3 wins) in the final seven games.
Here’s how we stand before today’s games in the Premier League and other teams now have games in hand on us because of the FA Cup.
We are certainly not safe yet and there’s still one club to be relegated along with Huddersfield and Fulham.
