Newcastle manager Howe: Liverpool, Man City losses will help us improve

Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe says recent losses to Liverpool and Manchester City will help his team improve.

The Magpies were smashed 5-0 by Pep Guardiola's City at the Etihad on Sunday.

Howe said after the loss: "The second and third goals, the two set-plays were disappointing from our perspective. Two corners, we're kicking ourselves.

"We had a good spell after the two subs. We had good chances to score. I'm disappointed with the last few minutes, it puts a different view on the game.

"We had some good passages of play. We tried to be positive. You can't make individual mistakes here. If you do that you'll concede - and we did. Those small details matter and they punished us. We could have defended both corners better.

"There's no better learning curve than playing Liverpool and Manchester City. They've taught us a lot about potential areas we need to improve."
