Newcastle can survive with this group says Mikel Merino
"Our squad is perfect for Premier League. All the players here are capable. I believe in each one and that this team is a great team. We know we have lost again, and we are not going through a good period, but we have to make sure we don’t lose our minds. We have shown this season that we are a good team with good players when we were higher up the table. We don’t need to change everything because of five bad results, we have to be strong.
"It was a disappointing result for us. We have to think positive, we have another match this week. We did a lot of good things, we managed the second half mostly with our possession and intensity, but we must keep improving and the results will come. The other teams can play, the other teams are good individually. We are making some mistakes in small things. The team did some good things but the goals we conceded weren’t perfect. We have to believe in ourselves and keep going. If we keep going with our efforts and the fans see that, again they saw a united team, a family playing football, and all together we will do things.
"The league has started, a lot of games have passed. We have to think about the next match. Nothing beyond that. We are disappointed, we know that we could have won this game. We know we have to give more than we are giving. The good things are that we have the chances to do it, we have another match. We are all together and we will carry on."
