Hatem Ben Arfa has urged Newcastle to make the most of their scoreless draw in Russia against Anzhi Makhachkala and progress into the Europa League quarter-finals. That gives them every chance of progressing when the two sides reconvene at St James' Park next Thursday evening.

He said: "We can now finish the job. Next week we have a great chance, we have the chance to win with our team.

"St James' Park will be a different game now. We were solid and we tried to keep the ball, but it was a night when we didn't have too many chances to score.

"I think 0-0 though is a good scoreline. We always prefer to score a goal or two, of course, but this gives us a good chance to get through."
