Newcastle have won their last two leagues games and, as they prepare to play Hull City this Saturday, they could find themselves on 10 points and level with current leaders Liverpool at the summit.

"It's two wins in a row, so that's good - now let's keep on winning," he told NUfcTV.

"We will work hard this week again, analyse them and bring our best performance on the pitch."

Anita is currently keeping Cheick Tiote out of the side, and he hopes they can continue the level they showed last time out against Aston Villa when they claimed a 2-1 win.

"We had a lot of the ball and you can play then, and that's my strength," he said.

"Of course - as a player, you always want to play and this year I've played more so let's keep it this way."

Anita joined the club from Ajax last season and he admits it took time for him to settle.

"I had things to learn and I hope to show it this year," he added.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
