Ben Arfa insists trouble-torn Newcastle can repeat their heroics of two years ago and claim a top-five finish.
Toon's France international midfielder said: "This year we are going to be stronger than last.
"It's our objective to finish top 10, and I hope we can finish top five. That will be tough, but I'm confident. The Manchester City game has gone and now we have to turn our attention to West Ham on Saturday.
"I'll be doing everything for the team to maybe repeat what we did two years ago."
