Newcastle can match anybody says Ameobi

Shola Ameobi is confident that Newcastle United can compete with any other team in the Premier League this season.

The Magpies currently sit fourth on the table following yesterday's 2-2 home draw with Tottenham and after an unbeaten start to the campaign, the man who netted the leveler, feels the team is currently fearless.

"We feel we can match the best teams in the Premier League - especially at St James' Park," he told the Chronicle.

"I'm excited. We've kept the unbeaten run going, which is great.

"It's something we're proud of, and it gives us great confidence as a squad of players that we can match the best, especially at home."

But Ameobi was also very wary of becoming too comfortable with a solid beginning to the season.

"We're not getting carried away, it's only eight games into the season," he added.

"We know it's a long season, and we'll have our ups and downs, but we've got a belief that we can come through pretty much anything.

"We're a team that fights to the death, and I think we did that."
