Eddie Howe has warned Newcastle’s Premier League rivals that his club has no qualms about getting under the skin of the top-flight establishment. Newcastle’s impressive rise to fourth place in the Premier League has been fueled by Howe’s astute management and the financial strength of the club’s Saudi-backed owners. But Newcastle’s climb has not gone down well with teams including Saturday’s opponents Liverpool pulling out. The Reds are ninth in the Premier League ahead of their trip to St James’ Park. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp complained about Newcastle’s time-wasting during their meeting earlier this season and has since targeted the Magpies’ spending power.

But Howe made it clear that his team is not there to make a choice, with their sole focus being on winning.

Howe told reporters, “We’re not here to do anything other than try to win the game that we’re competing in, and not to be the team that everybody looks at and thinks, ‘Good Loser’. We don’t want to be like that.” on Friday.

“That’s what I’m trying to instill in the players every day. I want to create a winning mindset and culture.”

Newcastle will be looking for revenge against Liverpool following their 2-1 defeat at Anfield in August, courtesy of Fabio Carvalho’s strike eight minutes into stoppage-time.

It was Newcastle’s last defeat in the Premier League as they went on a 17-game unbeaten run and Howe is determined to continue that streak.

Howe said, “I don’t need to be reminded how painful it is to lose. I did that most of my playing career and I hated that feeling and tried everything I could to not feel Could have done.”

“As a manager it’s probably 10 times worse, maybe 100 times worse. As a player I hate that feeling and I really hate it as a manager, so you’re preparing And trying to stay away from that feeling for a long time.” as possible.”
