That run has kept Monday's visitors, fresh from a 3-0 win over Arsenal last weekend, in with an outside chance of finishing seventh, which could be enough to qualify for next season's Europa League.

Wor flags hope today's display will help create an atmosphere akin to the scenes when we hosted Tottenham Hotspur three years ago (as pictured above) and convinced Benitez to stay on Tyneside following our relegation to the second-tier.
