Lascelles backs Newcastle in addressing their poor run of form

According to Jamaal Lascelles, Newcastle’s poor run of form can be explained by the “annoyed” players.

with a thumping 3-0 result on Monday which handed the visitors their fifth loss in their last seven

Premier League


Newcastle manager

Steve Bruce

made so many changes during the game and was still undone when

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

scored a brace and

Bukayo Saka

also met the target.

Another defeat has led the supporters aiming for Bruce to be fired.


Jamaal Lascelles

believes Newcastle can turn things for the better, revealing the squad is “annoyed” following their recent displays.

I’ve been in a lot of tough situations over the years and it is just about how you deal with them,

” he said.

Every club goes through a spell, Arsenal I think went 10 without a win but have turned it around and we have the players to do that.

“So I think it is just important that we stick together, the managers, the staff and the players and keep trying to do the right things and hopefully it gets better.

“Of course, it is always tough. We are just annoyed at ourselves, disappointed with the situation we are in, we thought we would put in a better performance than that.

“First half was alright, second half was terrible so we really need to look at ourselves.”

Arsenal, on the other hand, climbed up the table with their fourth victory in five league matches, making up for their weak start to the season.

Aubameyang’s brace resulted in five Premier League goals for him considering his struggles, and

Granit Xhaka

hailed the Gunners’ captain for overcoming his problems.

Everyone knows how important he is for us – not only on the pitch, but off the pitch as well,

” Xhaka said of Aubameyang.

Of course, every player has these moments where it is not going well for them.

“But he has kept going and training hard. Today he helped a lot and I am so happy for him. He scored and helped us.

“We are so happy we took the three points. It was very difficult in the first half, sometimes we put ourselves in trouble.

“But we knew if we scored quick in the second half, the game will be more open. In the end, I think it was an important three points.”
