Newcastle United stunning defeat in the hands of Wigan was only about the riskiest possible preparation for a away game at the Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, but Fabricio Coloccini, their captain have not given up tp their Champions League dream.
With Chelsea and Tottenham, both registering a win yesterday, expectations of a top – 4 finish are fading away from Newcastle United after their six back-to-back win that was ended by Wigan, who again contradicted their status as relegation strugglers by netting 4 goals before the half time.
Newcastle United finish what has been an interesting campaign with tough matches against Everton and Manchester City, but the Newcastle captain believes that a Champions League spot is still in their reach.
The Argentina defender told that it is like a dream for them, and they still have a chance to fight for this place. It was a disappointing loss against Wigan as they played badly against them. Now, they have two day to see what went wrong that day and get prepared for the next match.
The Chelsea match is going to be huge. All the team can do is to grab points from that game. It is true that their final games are difficult, but Newcastle just has to keep going. They are having good season and their confidence is on top now.
Even though the Europa League spot is still in the bag, but they have to give everything in the next few days to get that coveted spot.
Victor Moses scored two times in 3 minutes at the DW Stadium, before Franco Di Santo and Shaun Maloney secured the win for Wigan which is another huge scalp after the recent wins over Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United.
