Newcastle United have lost six of their previous seven games after Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp praised Eddie Howe’s team.

Newcastle’s ‘amazing football’ in their 1-0 win over Manchester United in early December shocked Klopp. Despite the fact that the team was dealing with an injury crisis, the outcome arrived.
Despite the fact that the team has subsequently welcomed back injured players like as Sven Botman, Callum Wilson, and Sean Longstaff, the results have deteriorated. Newcastle are in their worst run of form since Howe arrived at the club, having departed the Carabao Cup and Champions League competitions while also sliding to ninth in the Premier League rankings.
“I don’t think I’ve ever praised [Newcastle] before, but I saw them playing [v Man United] and I was really impressed, I have to say ‘wow,'” Klopp remarked at the start of December.

“They played the same team, almost exactly the same team that played in Paris, and it was a big fight.” Yes, it was more than just a massive brawl; it was also outstanding football, an advertisement for pressing, counter-pressing, and direct football, really good football.”

And Howe is determined to remain cool as he works to assist his team regain those standards ahead of a difficult run of fixtures in January. “It’s funny with the Manchester United game because it feels like a long time ago but it’s not,” Howe said in an interview with The Gazette. “It was our best performance of the season and I thought on the day we were outstanding, physically excellent, there was no fatigue.”We attacked the game on the front foot, and I thought we were fantastic. Fast forward a few weeks, and the landscape has changed, and that’s where I have to remain calm and say, ‘It wasn’t long ago, and that’s the game group of players we have now, or almost so.’

“Of course, the aim is to get back to those levels mentally and physically and deliver those kind of performances on a consistent basis.”

Following the Liverpool game, Newcastle will play Sunderland in the FA Cup before facing Manchester City and Aston Villa in the Premier League.
