Eddie Howe called for « calm » at Newcastle as the club look to bounce back from last weekend’s loss to Arsenal.
Newcastle’s hopes of finishing in the top four suffered a blow after a 2-0 home defeat to Arsenal last weekend, with fifth-placed Liverpool moving within three points of the Magpies having played a match in more.
Howe’s side went to Premier League relegation-threatened Leeds at the weekend and the Newcastle boss has called on his side to stay calm and not overreact to last week’s setback at St James’ Park.
« It’s about calm and not overreacting [to Sunday’s 2-0 defeat at home to Arsenal] said Howe in his pre-game press conference.
« But it’s also about making sure players understand how different this game will be from others we’ve had recently. It will be more similar to Everton’s game [which Newcastle won 4-1]I think. »

« I’ve always said that this season he’s been flying under the radar in terms of what he gives the team tactically, technically and physically. He’s a top player and he has a very good (Site notre bureau spécialisé)ing brain « , so we missed those qualities that he has. But, as always, you have to adapt when someone is missing and I think we have the players to cover.
