Newcastle United will be looking to record back to back Premier League victories when they meet Fulham at St. James’ Park on Saturday.
Rafa Benitez’s side have turned things around on the pitch and have managed to pick up a number of results along the way.
The Spaniard will be determined for his side to take advantage of Fulham’s position in the league and will tell his team to do everything they can for the three points.
Federico Fernandez could be set to make a return to the Magpies after he was absent for their game against Huddersfield Town.
The Argentine defender, who has been a rock at the back this season, was injured two weeks ago against Wolverhampton Wanderers but is thought to be in contention for the game against Fulham.
Fernandez has been solid for Newcastle since joining from Swansea City and it will be a huge boost to the Magpies’ chances of securing the three points on Saturday.
The defender has been a standout for the Toon Army and has significantly helped to improve the backline with his performances.
Newcastle will want to record a second consecutive win on Saturday, as they know picking up points against the teams that are struggling will help to ensure they are not involved in a relegation battle themselves.
