Cheick Tiote: Believes that Newcastle can qualify for Europe

The Magpies lie eighth in the table, six points off the European places, and beat West Ham last weekend following a run of four straight defeats in all competitions.

Tiote says the team are in a much better place than this time last season and the confidence is there to go for a win in all their remaining games.

"We are happy because last year it was not the same. Now we can try to win every game. If we keep trying that we can gain a Europa League place or even a Champions League place," Tiote told the Evening Chronicle.

"We had lost four games, but winning against West Ham was massive to win the game. Everybody is focused. We are doing the right things again. Everybody is happy.

"Before the game we were talking together. We said we had to come back in the right way. We will try to win every game. Everybody is focused and at West Ham we saw that it made the difference."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
