Soccer – Benitez: No need for panic

Rafa Benitez has refused to panic after seeing his Newcastle United outfit make a dismal start to the new Premier League season. The Magpies have garnered a mere two points from eight league games played so far this season and are still searching for a first victory of the campaign. However, having guided the Tynesiders away from danger last season, Benitez is not about to panic about the lowly placing of his side at the present moment. The Spaniard told the Northern Echo: "For us, the main thing is to keep working hard and doing the right things, even if you lose a game. "We need to do the right things, but even if you are right, you can lose. The team is good and the team will do well if we have confidence. "Some of the players were doing well at the end of last season, but they are not doing so well now. "We will need some time to make sure they go back to that level. In the meantime we have played four of the top six. So was anyone expecting that now we would be in the middle of the table? No, no-one." The Magpies are currently priced at 9/4 with bet365 to be relegated this season.
