Former Newcastle United striker Micky Quinn has claimed on Twitter that the Toon squad have a lot making up to do to manager Rafa Benitez against West Bromwich Albion after losing four consecutive Premier League matches.

The Toon travel to the Midlands on Tuesday night to face managerless West Brom, on the back of losses to Bournemouth, Burnley, Manchester United and Watford, which leaves the Mapies in 14th place.

Spaniard Benitez has been forced to watch the Toon struggle from the managerial dugout throughout, with his side managing to score just one goal in those four games during the 4-1 loss to Jose Mourinho's United.

Newcastle icon Quinn took to Twitter to give his opinion on Newcastle's recent performances, stating that the "Newcastle players owe Rafa a performance" after their recent run of form.

Newcastle will be boosted by the return of Mikel Merino from a back injury, while Isaac Hayden could also feature after being suspended for the Toon's 3-0 defeat to Watford.

Three points for Benitez's side could see them climb right back up the Premier League table to ninth place, but would need a whole host of teams to drop points in Leicester City, Southampton, Bournemouth, Huddersfield and Brighton.
