Roy Hodgson seeks to keep Crystal Palace grounded after first win

These are exciting times for Newcastle United, with takeover talks accelerating and the end of the Mike Ashley's era approaching, and this was a reminder of the considerable progress already made under Rafa Benitez.

Newcastle have started this season in fine form, and sit sixth in the table after nine games.

"It is important now to get three points in a hard game", Benitez told the BBC.

Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend is relishing his return to Newcastle United but is not expecting a warm reception at his former club, the 26-year-old said ahead of Saturday's Premier League match at St. James' Park.

Having won four games and lost three, Crooks has affirmed his belief that Benitez can achieve the highest domestic honour in winning the league if he were provided with the right resources.

Ashley never won over Newcastle's long-suffering fans and his announcement was greeted with relief on Tyneside, while Benitez would have taken heart from the news after bemoaning the lack of backing he received in the transfer market.

The Newcastle fans took to social media to provide their reactions to a priceless three points, however, one certain player appeared to pick up a lot of heat from his own supporters.

"So I think there is no doubt for me, he is a top class manager and they are lucky to have him".

"I mean with Keegan they didn't win anything, but he flirted with the title".

"I think he is capable...."

"Rafa can win it with the right resources there".

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez: "Always when you win you have to be really pleased".
