Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor says they're up for their Europa League date with Anzhi after defeat to Swansea City.

He now hopes that getting one foot into the last eight of the Europa League with a positive result in Moscow can erase the pain of losing in Wales.

Looking ahead to United's first leg clash with Guus Hiddink's team, Taylor told the Evening Chronicle: "It can't come any quicker. We need a game under our belt.

"We go to Moscow and it will be freezing. But when you come from a defeat you want the next game quickly, and we have that."
