Newcastle United: 'I've seen enough to see we can compete' - but is Eddie Howe right?

Only one team has stayed up in Newcastle's situation - and head coach Eddie Howe admits 'we need to get that win as quickly as we can' - so can the Magpies survive?

Reasons to be positive?There were some encouraging signs for Newcastle at the Emirates, with Jonjo Shelvey having a shot tipped on to the bar by Aaron Ramsdale in one of several Magpies chances.Their 15 goals scored this season are more than three top-half teams, but they have conceded more goals - 29 - than anybody else.

Howe, who was relegated with Bournemouth in his last management job, has barely had time to work with his players yet as a result of contracting Covid.Former West Ham striker Carlton Cole, who was watching the game for BBC Radio 5 Live, said: "I see better days coming for this Newcastle team. It hasn't gone their way today but they bought into it.

"Players will be playing out of position for them but Eddie Howe should be happy because they've tried their best today. It wasn't to be - they have to lick their wounds and hopefully they'll get a result in the week."twitterHowe saw encouraging signs too. headtopics.com

"I thought it was a good performance from us, especially at the start of the game. I thought for the first 30 minutes we were very good."I think the players have been very responsive and in my first two games have given everything for the team."

The game could have been very different if Newcastle had been given a penalty when Callum Wilson went down under pressure from Nuno Tavares. That happened moments before Gabriel Martinelli made it 2-0 - after Bukayo Saka had earlier opened the scoring.

Howe said: "The game was decided after the incident with Callum Wilson and the penalty. I know we were already a goal down but I think that was a real tough call against us. They then scored after that."I don't know why Callum would go down [if he wasn't fouled]. He was one-on-one, it was a great chance.

"There's a feeling that those big calls have gone against us and ultimately it had a big result on today."
