Rafa Benitez’s message to Liverpool fans ahead of crucial clash in Premier League title race

Former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has spoken out to the Reds’ fans ahead of the crucial clash between Newcastle and Liverpool in the Premier League.

For the past four months, Manchester City and Jurgen Klopp’s men have been locked in a very long and consistent battle for the Premier League title.

Despite starting the season in somewhat of a transition after the arrivals of several players in the summer transfer window, the Reds have put together a brilliant run to challenge for the league crown.

However, the fact that Manchester City were able to see off Burnley with a very narrow win on Sunday means that the race for the title is in favour of City with only two games left to play.

Liverpool now have arguably the harder fixtures left with a trip to Newcastle next on the schedule.
The Magpies are managed of course by former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez, who has stated that he is not out to hand any favours to his old club when they meet.
“We will do what we have done the whole season and that’s try to win the game,” Benitez told the Liverpool Echo
“We play at home in front of our own fans and will try to do our best.
“It’s my responsibility to look after Newcastle and if I was on the other side, I would be expecting the opposition to do their best and the manager to try his best.”
