Goals from Christian Atsu and Jamaal Lascelles, either side of a Xheridan Shaqiri strike, leave the Magpies fourth in the table.

"We had some chances to do that but we didn't take them and then a set-piece was our downfall and we know how important they are in modern football". The players are trying to understand the way we have to play our game.

"We will find teams like Newcastle who will show respect and sit back and invite us on and so we've got to be more accurate in our work and our passing".

The winger got off the mark after pouncing on Matt Ritchie's cross with a vital touch in the 19th minute before Jamaal Lascelles headed home the victor for Raphael Benitez' men. It's a similar squad to previous year with a few added players who have helped us.

"We're a good side and we can knock it around but in key moments you've got to be really clinical and make sure you give the right weight of pass to allow players to have those clear-cut chances". "We don't want to get too carried away but we're definitely on the up". "Today we weren't quite there in terms of creativity in the last third".

Joselu has netted once in four Premier League games under compatriot Rafael Benitez since joining the North-East club; not a bad record, but not a great one, considering he was already in the division, and he'll be aiming to improve on that as the season progresses.

"Last week (against Swansea), I managed to get myself into a good area and I was disappointed I didn't score in the first half".

"We've got the right mentality, we've got the talent".
