Newcastle have muddled themselves into the most indefensible positions this season.The Magpies are experiencing a long bout of bad luck in the Premier League and canny manager Rafael Benítez has comeunderfire.
Benítez, who formerly managed clubs Real Madrid and Chelsea, leading the latter to Europa Cup glory during his short stint at Stamford Bridge, has yet to record any success in the Premier League this season.
Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez has defended his conservative tactics during the recent league meeting versus Chelsea. The Magpies lined up in a 5-4-1 formation during the game and they nearly secured a draw despite commanding less than one-fifth of the overall possession at St James Park.
Speaking after the match, Benitez was appreciative of the efforts of the squad and stressed that he would have welcomed a more open encounter, had he possessed a player of Eden Hazard’s attributes, he said: “It depends on the players you have. If I had [Eden] Hazard I would give it to him and he would make the difference. We know that we can be better with the ball, but I think we did well until the end.”
