We did ourselves a lot of good by winning the last two games at Leicester and at home to Southampton.
Both games looked difficult after we surprisingly were beaten at home by Crystal Palace and we did great to get all 6 points.
That has taken us to safety on 41 points, and we need 4 points in our final three games to beat last year’s points total of 44 points.
But it seems the best we can do in the table is to finish 11th – one place lower than last season.
Rafa Benitez – upbeat with thumbs-up
Here’s our league position after yesterday 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Burnley – a good point by Burnley.
