Rafa: We must ignore the table

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 306

Benitez has told Newcastle to ignore the league table as they prepare for Monday night's tough trip to in-form Wolves.

Newcastle are currently sitting in 15th place in the Premier League table ahead of their encounter with Wolves who have recently displayed a decent run of form. The Magpies, however, will also be happy with their recent performances after posting back-to-back league victories over Cardiff and Manchester City before narrowly losing to Tottenham. Those victories mean that Newcastle went two points clear of the relegation zone.

However, this did not last very long as wins for Cardiff and Burnley saw them drop two places in the table - they remain clear of trouble but only thanks to goal difference. Rafael Benitez has urged his players not to focus on other teams and concentrate only on what they can change themselves.

"Your players can't affect what happens on the other pitches, so you just have to stay concentrated on your game."

Benitez will hope that new signing Miguel Almiron holds the key to Newcastle's relegation escape.
