Gus Poyet: “The only thing that matters is that it’s the derby, it’s Newcastle.
“It’s a perfect moment to win a game, to start winning.
“But on the other hand, we need to change and improve dramatically if we want to win.
“I think a defeat like Swansea shows you why we are there (at the bottom). Nothing else.
“I don’t think you can analyse more than that.
“We work well to a point, but then everything goes awry because of whatever happens.
“That is something we need to address very quickly.
“It’s been difficult not to think about the derby.
“I was out in Newcastle having dinner during the international break and they were already talking about it.
“But I wanted to wait until this week to deal with it.
“I’m the type of person that when we finish at 6pm on a Saturday, I’m normally dead.
“But from Sunday morning, whatever time I wake up, it’s all about the next game.
“Of course, I stop in the afternoon to watch the games on TV.
“But we couldn’t start looking at Newcastle until then.”
