Four training pictures which sum up Newcastle’s current mood

St James Park

Newcastle United will face Chelsea away from home in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Newcastle United players were training today ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash against Manchester City away from home.

Newcastle will head into the game at the Etihad Stadium on the back of 2-2 draw with Chelsea at home in the Premier League.

The Magpies were 2-0 up at St. James’ Park last weekend and conceded twice late on to settle for a share of the spoils.

Steve McClaren’s side have yet to win a game in the league this season, and it will not be easy for them to defeat City at the Etihad in Manchester on Saturday.

The mood in the Newcastle camp, though, is of optimism and hope, as the photos above and below show.

The players appear to be in a good and positive mood, and that is certainly something good.

Winning against City will not be easy, but if Newcastle head into the game with confidence and optimism, then they could just about come away with a point.
