Newcastle United forward Joselu insists Newcastle are a club that remains united and they will head to West Ham ready to fight for three points.

The Magpies were beaten 1-0 by Arsenal on Saturday as their poor run of form stretched to one win in 13 Premier League games.

United are now in the Premier League relegation zone but know a win at West Ham will see them leapfrog their opponents in the table.

And although Joselu admits the Magpies are in a ‘difficult situation’, he insists the squad are focused on kicking off the vital festive period with a win.

“It is very big - there are a lot of games,” Joselu told NUFC TV.

“We are trying to focus on this weekend but then we will focus on every game because we can’t think about the future with a big game this weekend.

“It is very important. We need to win for us. We know it is difficult because the situation is not good but the team, the club and the staff are all together and we will fight for the three points.

Joselu made his debut for Newcastle against West Ham, scoring in a 3-0 win at St James’ Park.

Since then David Moyes has revitalised the Hammers but the former Stoke forward is confident that August’s win will help the Magpies ahead of this weekend’s trip to the Olympic Stadium.

“We know how to play West Ham and we know we need to play well,” the Spaniard continued.

“We need to stay calm in the game and score more goals than West Ham and win the game.

“Every game in the Premier League is difficult - we know that - but we need to win and we will go to West Ham’s stadium looking to take the three points.”

Newcastle performed very well against Arsenal in the second half and could consider themselves unlucky not to get something from the game at the Emirates Stadium.

Joselu almost scored himself but for his deflected effort flashing narrowly past the post and he is hopeful they can bring the character they showed at Arsenal into this weekend’s trip to West Ham.

“We know these games are difficult when you play against big teams and big squads,” he said.

“But in the last game we fought until the end and we had our chances. This week we have worked hard in training and we will look to have the same character this week.”

He continued: “The second half we played well but in the first half we made mistakes and this is normal against big teams.

“We have to keep going and take the same character from the second half against Arsenal and after that we will win points.”
