Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles: We need change of mentality

Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles says they need an attitude adjustment for the new season.

Lascelles admits he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from an ankle injury as he explained how Newcastle are looking to adopt a 'winning mentality' this season.

"We need to have the mentality that we are here to win games," he said.

"We are not here to survive.

"I think if we can sort that out among the players, we know the league now and we have been here long enough.

"We have got the players, we have got the experience in the Prem, so there's no reason why we can't really have a go this year."
