Rafa Benitez was happy with a seven point haul from United's toughest week of the season - but as Brighton and Huddersfield both picked up points, Newcastle's lead at the top was sliced down to three points.
That still represents a fine return and United have managed to keep their main rivals at arm's length despite some tough games.
Now United have a home game against Fulham - one of the teams who have rolled them over this season. Benitez says he wants to see the stadium full and fully supportive of Newcastle as they look to capitalise on their good week.
The gaffer faces the media this afternoon and as ever we will bring you all of the latest ahead of tomorrow's clash with Slavisa Jokanovic's Fulham side. #newcastleunited #newcastlefc #fulham
