  • Rafael Benitez

A brace from on loan Kenedy and a goal from Matt Ritchie earned the Magpies a much needed victory, but it was England global Jonjo Shelvey who was the catalyst for the win and the man who received all the plaudits after the match.

He said: "I think every single game from now thinking about the next nine games will be massive because we have to try to do our job as soon as possible".

A number of them took to social media to laud their star and make sure that everyone knew just how good he was on a pivotal day for their side. At this level you can not start in this way because we missed an fantastic chance to try to improve. "In this situation we have to react as quickly as we can".

The two-term limit was approved in 1982 to prevent a repeat of a decadeslong reign by Mao Zedong , who died while in office. The amendment was one of several in a proposal that was voted on at a plenary meeting of the ongoing annual NPC session.

After a lacklustre performance last weekend against Stoke City, bringing three points back from the trip north would give some relief for the players and fans ahead of the FA Cup quarter-final clash with Wigan.

Newcastle are now 16th in the league standings, just two points clear of the drop zone ahead of Saturday's vital home match against 17th-placed Southampton. "You can have good players, you can have budget, but without spirit and personality (it) is really hard to compete. Overall we have to change, we have to switch on our spirit and compete much better". It looks very hard now but in a week we've got another game in the FA Cup and we have to show our best to change our spirit on the pitch.

"I think we deserved to win some games and maybe managing them in another way, the last 10-15 minutes, it could be different. Without the right attitude, it's hard to compete".
