“Now it’s about taking it on, about being at home, getting the fans behind you and taking on a performance; not waiting for it, actually being pro-active about making things happen.”
Newcastle, meanwhile, will be looking to win their first Premier League away match of the season on Monday.
If they manage to keep a clean sheet, it will be the first time they have recorded successive Premier League away clean sheets since December 2013.
