After the game yesterday Rafa sounded like he did a few times at the beginning of the season when the team played against top-six opposition, but in the end, we had nothing to show for it regarding points.

This is what Rafa said after the game as reported in the Chronicle: “You could see a lot of positives with the performance but no points.” “We knew that they would keep the ball and we had to maximize what we did when we got the ball.” “We had some chances on the counter but our final pass wasn’t there.” “We conceded a goal we could avoid but after that we were fighting for every ball.

We also need to keep more clean sheets to maximize the chances of winning games.

Sean Longstaff – held his own against world-class opposition But Rafa had to be pleased with some of the performances yesterday with young Sean Longstaff and the returning Florian Lejeune catching the eye.

The top six are way above the rest of the teams in the Premier League, but we must start winning games against the other 14 teams.

Newcastle are currently 4 points behind where we were last season at this time (after 22 games), but it’s nothing that a few wins cannot put right.

Florian Lejeune made his first Premier League start of the season, and he looked class in this game.
