Christian Atsu backs Newcastle United to ‘overcome’ relegation woes after Man City defeat

Christian Atsu is confident Newcastle United will turn things around after their poor run in the English Premier League. The Magpies were hammered 4-0 by the champions in front of their own fans, leaving them rooted in the relegation zone. Atsu took to Twitter to express his support for his former club and states Newcastle United have the mentality to fight back. 

“I’ve been with Newcastle United FC players for 5 years and I know the mentality that they have, keep calm and watch them overcome this situation,” he wrote. The St James’ outfit ISI 19th on the table with only ten points and have played more games than their relegation rivals, Burnley and Norwich. On Sunday, Ruben Diaz and Joao Cancelo netted for Manchester City in the first half to take the game beyond the Magpies. Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling then finished off the thrashing in the second half.
