Five straight home losses - Newcastle curse rotten run under Rafa


Newcastle United's 1-0 loss to Manchester City means the Magpies have been defeated in five consecutive home league matches for the first time since October 1953. Rafael Benitez's days at the helm at St James Park could be numbered as the Spaniard has now lost six of his last 10 home Premier League matches. With City defender Nicolas Otamendi alone completing more passes than all the outfield players of Newcastle combined, the powers at be will be demanding Benitez turn things around - and fast.
