Diame backs Newcastle United to finish high in English Premier League

Mohamed Diame has warned that Newcastle United will not relent on their recent form as they aim ‘to finish as high as possible’ in the English Premier League table.

On Sunday, the Magpies stunned Arsenal at the St. James Park with a comeback 2-1 victory which shot them to the tenth spot in the log having accrued 41 points from 33 outings.

And the Senegal international who played a crucial role in the tie has declared the intention of Rafael Benitez’ men to climb higher before the end of the season.

“We’re still going to try to finish as high as possible in the table. As I have said before, we have to enjoy winning for a few days, but after that, focus on the next task in hand,” Diame told BT Sports.

“We have to start work again this week and look to Everton.”
