“What?! Newcastle not feeling the pressure of being hunted?”

In a press conference held on Wednesday, Newcastle boss Eddie Howe revealed that he does not feel as though his team is being hunted, despite their current position of third in the Premier League table. As the team seeks to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in twenty years, they are set to play a critical match against high-flying Brighton at St James’ Park. Meanwhile, Roberto De Zerbi’s side has their sights set on European football for the first time in their history after their recent 3-0 win against Arsenal. Currently, Newcastle is level on points with Manchester United, both with three games remaining, and just behind Manchester City and Arsenal. However, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool is just one point behind, having played a game more, after their seventh straight league win at Leicester. Despite this, Howe remains focused on the team’s own efforts rather than the competition. Victory in their last two home games would guarantee a place in the Champions League, and Howe hopes that the recent security breach he experienced during the Leeds match will lead to improvements in football security to prevent future incidents and potential tragedy.
