Newcastle have looked good this season, but the hard work is yet to come for Rafael Benitez.
The clear favourites to top the Championship table come the end of May, the Magpies have often looked great throughout the campaign but their season has not been without a few wobbles.
Nonetheless, promotion is the least of what is expected from Benitez, with some Newcastle fans already beginning to look towards their first season back in the Premier League.
Indeed, the Magpies’ last term in the top flight didn’t go too well, and so a major shift will be required if they are to stay in the Premier League at the next time of asking.
New signings are expected to ensure that their side is strong enough, but could Benitez look towards a few former stars in pursuit of keeping his side’s place in the Premier League?
Some top players have been on display at St James’ Park in recent years, but who, in particular, should Benitez look to re-sign? Have your say by voting below!
