Benitez reveals Newcastle game plan ahead of Man Utd test

Benitez reveals Newcastle game plan ahead of Man Utd test

That hard run starts this weekend with the hosting of Manchester United, where Newcastle can find inspiration in the fact that Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has never tasted victory at St. James' Park.

Manchester United are expected to be welcomed by another capacity crowd on Sunday and Ritchie admits he loved playing in front of the Newcastle fans during his playing days due to their passion.

"But I have to cry a little bit, I have to try to protect my players because, really, you can see the way Alexis was welcomed!"

"I'm pretty sure I'd win".

"Manchester United are just efficient, aren't they?"

"Could he come in my direction in the way I think football and the way I like my players to be?" he said.

National Basketball Association trade deadline rumors: Cavs, Clippers still discussing a DeAndre Jordan deal
The Cavs are attempting to improve their roster by only parting with their own first round pick and retaining Brooklyn's. It likely wouldn't be a team in the Eastern Conference, so it limits which ones might be included in these negotiations.

But Mourinho is making a focused effort to change tack at a time of refereeing scrutiny, such as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp's anger towards officials after last weekend's frenetic 2-2 draw with Tottenham. You can do a really good job, but still you can lose games 1-0, 2-0 because of the quality of the players that they have.

Newcastle, of course, made only three loan signings in January - one of them, Leicester striker Islam Slimani, could make his debut if he can shake off the thigh injury with which he arrived - as owner Mike Ashley kept his powder dry once again.

"They can't look at a player and say this guy is very talented so I have to protect him". Mourinho's men seem to be doing enough to grind out results and I think they'll go away with another three points on Sunday afternoon.

Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is convinced that all of the ten clubs on the bottom half of the Premier League standings are in danger of relegation this season.

"If you say something and the other manager says something and you win the game, the assumption is that you are winning the mind games. It is like this".
