Newcastle United need points and soon, says goalkeeper Rob Elliot

"They want to give a very clear message that they care and they want to do things right so they have made a decision to cancel their Christmas party", the former Liverpool boss told reporters.

At that time, the victory propelled them to seventh spot in the Premier League table, just two points off the Champions League places.

Mesut Ozil's stunning first-half volley was enough for Arsenal to pick up a 1-0 victory over the Magpies at the Emirates Stadium, a result which saw Newcastle drop into the relegation zone courtesy of wins elsewhere for Crystal Palace and West Ham United.

The North Londoners seem to be having problems of their own, having found the back of the net just twice in their last 3 Premier League games, and if not for Mesut Ozil's worldie, might have struggled to get over the line once again.

However, Staveley's PCP Capital Partners could come to an agreement over January funding while the Premier League ratifies a change in ownership - if a deal is agreed this month.

"We will try to bring in some additions that will bring a lift to the team".

Asked about his plans for the January window, Benitez said: "I have an idea".


"You can't complain about the work-rate of our players".

"They talked between themselves and decided and I think it's the right thing".

"But, now, we have to start to see what we can afford, because we need this, we need that".

"Still, though, we stayed in the game, and when you are working as hard as we were working, that means that this team's still fighting".

"They said, 'Relegated?'. I said, 'Yes, relegated!'".

"There aren't too many options with Premier League experience, with the maximum level and the right personality, so it's not easy, but you have to do your research everywhere". I was asking four or five players about it and they were very clear: "Oh no, we cannot" and that was it. Against West Ham, they took 22 shots and scored none.

"What I don't have at the moment is any offers of £15million or £20million for any of our players".
