​Magpies star Ritchie insists Newcastle staying grounded

Newcastle United attacker Matt Ritchie has stated that the Magpies are not getting carried away despite a promising start.

The Magpies are currently occupying the dizzying heights of fourth place in the Premier League table following three consecutive victories but despite the fine run, Ritchie has stated that his side have their foots firmly planted on the ground.

Ritchie said: "You'd be very naive to look at the table now and get excited. For the fans, they can look at it and be proud, but we're five games in and have nine points on the board.

"We need to hit the 40-point mark before we start getting carried away. Like any team, we want to do that as soon as possible. Hopefully, we can continue to perform well. With good performances, come points."
