He said: "We had a bad result at Newcastle last season. We lost Michael Ballack injured as well so it wasn't a good day. This year we will keep going and try to take it to the last day.
"Then it is squeaky bum time, as the famous man once said. It is a final push for me. I have played a lot of football and I haven't been at my best in my last few games but I want to come back to my best in this game and get the points.
"We have good resilience and we find it easy to play when teams come out at us. Hopefully, with the position Newcastle are in they will come at us and it will be a high-scoring game and another three points for us.
"In front of their own fans they are going to want to play and there are a couple of old Manchester United players in there who are going want to do their mates some favours but we just have to get the job done."
