Benitez sounds Newcastle warning

27th February 2019, 03:46 by Michael Holland

Newcastle are not safe from the drop just yet despite moving seven points clear of the relegation zone, Rafa Benitez has insisted.

Tuesday night's 2-0 win over Burnley, which came just three days after they beat Huddersfield by the same score, eased them clear of the relegation zone with 10 games left to play.

However, as he turned his attention to Saturday's trip to West Ham, Benitez insisted there is still lots of work to do before they can say they are safe.

"Obviously winning games, you have more confidence and then the pressure is different, but still we have to have the same idea: one game at a time, the next game is the most important," he said.

"If we are where we are now, it's because we are focused on that and we have to do exactly the same. We cannot think the job is done, no chance.

"There's no over-confidence. We have to keep going - we can lose games, but we have to approach every game with the same mentality as today."

The win was Newcastle's fourth on the trot at St James' Park and took their tally from the last six league outings to 13 points.
