Rafa Benitez sure he can tempt players to join Newcastle

Rafa Benitez sure he can tempt players to join Newcastle

"We are a team that came from the Championship and where we are now could be expected". I was asking four or five players about it and they were very clear: "Oh no, we cannot" and that was it.

Visitors Newcastle United are having a much worse season, sitting in 16th place and just one little point above the relegation zone, mired in mediocrity and controversy, as well as a potentially pending sale of the club. "They are giving everything but they have decided this and I think that's very positive", he added.

The 27-year-old has been criticised by Magpies fans for his performances for the team this season.

But Elliot believes other clubs who are enjoying an upturn in results can show Newcastle the way as they look to get out of trouble over the festive period.

The Magpies were dominated by Arsenal in the first half, as the Gunners had a number of chances to extend their lead further, however, they failed to take any of those chances.

If Newcastle don't pick up at least six or seven points from those matches, then surely the writing is on the wall.

"They want to give a very clear message that they care and they want to do things right so they have made a decision to cancel their Christmas party", the former Liverpool boss told reporters.

"We had our chances (against Arsenal). Things will be different because the distance is not too big in the table".

"If we continue playing like this, we will have a couple of games where we get better results, that will give us more confidence. We have a hard situation now but we know it could be worse".

"We have to make sure we continue working at this level and get chances to win these games".
