Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor is convinced they can win in Ukraine against Europa League opponents Metalist Kharkiv.

Taylor, who had made his European debut in a 3-0 away victory over Real Mallorca earlier in that campaign, knows exactly what is at stake in Ukraine, and has no doubts the Magpies can get the result they crave.

He said: "They have got to be worried about our players. Ability-wise, we have the better players.

"We have got a lot of international players who have played on the big stage. They know what to expect.

"If we play like we did [last night], we will be all right."
