"It was tough, we know every game in the Premier League is going to be tough. We are still getting to know each other, we’ve got players coming in left, right and centre and it’s about getting to know each other better. I think when that comes together the results will start improving.
"I don’t like to make excuses because we weren’t good enough today. Credit to Newcastle, they scored two incredible goals but we need to be better but there is no time to dwell on this game because the games will come quick and there’s no time to be miserable or sad. We have to learn from our mistakes.
"For most of the lads, the Premier League is new – for a lot of the lads today that was their debut. It’s going to be a rollercoaster but we need to stick together and keep learning."
