Three of our top performers in Fabian Schar, Christian Atsu, and Jamaal Lascelles have tweeted about their disappointment with not securing the full three points yesterday.

This has been a running theme coming from Steve Bruce and the players after yesterday’s result against Watford. It was a missed opportunity at getting three points that would have seen Newcastle up to eighth place in the table. However, the point takes them out of the relegation zone and into fourteenth.
It give Newcastle a solid platform to build upon. However, they next face Liverpool at Anfield on September 14th. That fixture represented our worst defeat of the season as Liverpool easily won 4-0.
We’ll have to see how Steve Bruce approaches this match. Though we would imagine it will be similar to the Spurs match last weekend. The game at Liverpool also might see the return of Andy Carroll for Newcastle. While playing Liverpool at Anfield is nothing to look forward to, the return of Big Andy will be.
