Benitez insists Newcastle have top six potential

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez insists the club has top six potential.

Benitez has been frustrated by Newcastle's apparent reluctance to fulfil their potential, with the sole aim each season being survival.

"Looking at the bigger picture, I think we have the potential to be at the same level as Everton," said Benitez.

"I don't think it's impossible to compete against some of the top six. But these positions from seventh to 10th, I think there are four or five big clubs who can be there, depending on whether you do things right."
