Football- 3 January 2018 10:03 GMT
Rafael Benitez while assessing the loss of Newcastle to Manchester United was critical of the two goals conceded and the bluntness of their attack.
Benitez said: “On these kind of nights, you have to be disappointed in the way that you lost because if the other team is doing really well, much better than you, you say ‘Fair enough, that’s it’. Hw as quoted by Teamtalk.com
“But we were doing enough to deserve something more. We made a mistake and conceded the first goal and after when we were doing better, we conceded the second goal from a counter-attack.”
Benitez was clearly frustrated by his side’s inability to turn their pressure into goals and continued: “For 85 minutes, we deserved something more than just to lose the way that we lost.
“The message is clear and consistent: in the final third, the accuracy of the final pass, the assist, the final decisions, that is the key if you want to score more goals.”
