David Ginola believes Newcastle United must win all four of their remaining games to survive

St James Park

The Frenchman believes that Newcastle United have it all to do.

Newcastle United face a tough fight if they are to survive relegation from the Premier League this season. The Magpies are currently in the relegation zone, two points behind Norwich City in the final survival spot, with just four games left to play.

Newcastle have a tough task in their next four games and with Liverpool up next some have been suggesting that a draw at Anfield would not be a bad result for Newcastle in their relegation fight.

But former Newcastle player David Ginola, who played in a famous Newcastle game against Liverpool 20 years ago, believes a draw would not be enough. He told talkSPORT:

“Hopefully not. They know exactly what they have to do.

“The destiny is not in their hands. They need to win all of their games and after that they just have to wait and see.

“A point at Anfield would be a fantastic result at any stage of the season, but not right now.

“A draw is not enough.

“There’s not many games left and every single point is crucial so having said that losing at Anfield would be terrible.”

Ginola believes that Newcastle need to win all four of their remaining games, to end the season on 41 points, if they are going to survive and there is no doubt that Rafa Benitez’ s side have a tough task considering their opposition.

Whilst they will fancy their chances against Aston Villa and Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Tottenham are much tougher propositions.

A win against Swansea and a draw with Manchester City has revitalised spirits around St James’ Park but, as Ginola has inadvertently made clear, Newcastle still look likely to be relegated this season.
