Newcastle midfielder Ki Sung-yueng: Time for action

Newcastle United midfielder Ki Sung-yueng says it's time for action.

Emotions were running high as the players left the King Power Stadium last weekend following the 5-0 thrashing against Leicester City, and since then players have held their own meeting in a bid to get the season back on track.

It is understood that goalkeeper Martin Dubravka put his hands up in the direct aftermath of the heavy defeat and accepted his share of the blame as the goals rained in against the Foxes.

Ki told the Evening Chronicle: "We have to show it on the pitch, or there's no point (in making claims).

"I didn't know what to say after the game, the fans stayed behind us.

"In that type of game it is difficult to find the words to say to the fans or the media.

"I just feel sorry for the fans.

"They came all the way to Leicester.

"We're still disappointed but we still have to move forward in the next game against Man United."
